Southeast Alaska Conservation Council works its magic in three ways:
Southeast Alaskans are ready for Tongass management that preserves habitat for hunting; saves salmon strongholds for fishing; supports our booming tourism industry; and protects the carbon-rich ancient forests that moderate global climate. We can get there today by ending controversial old-growth clearcuts and supporting a community-scale, local wood economy that provides longterm jobs for Tongass communities.

Keeping Southeast Alaska’s clean water clean.
From the headwaters of our transboundary rivers to the estuaries of the Inside Passage, clean water unifies our region and supports the salmon that power our communities. An independent program of SEACC, the Inside Passage Waterkeeper organizes people to monitor and protect clean water, and provides the legal and scientific expertise to hold polluters accountable, from source to sea. http://www.insidepassagewaterkeeper.org
Technical support for grassroots changemakers.
Our Tools for Change program builds people power for social and environmental change in our region. Our toolkit includes training in community org anizing, water quality science, access to our progressive network and online platforms, multimedia storytelling, and legal action. This year, we’re helping the citizen-led Alaska Climate Action Network get off the ground and make change on climate around our state and the world. We offer ongoing training and study design for water quality monitoring projects around the region. http://www.alaskaclimateaction.org
Grassroots Legal Program
Our Grassroots Attorney Buck Lindekugel and Inside Passage Waterkeeper Coordinator Guy Archibald provide legal and scientific resources at the request of local communities.
