    Your Southeast Story - Share What You Love

    I want to tell you about an exciting new project here at SEACC, Tongass Imprints. This app is your opportunity to join with others who love Southeast Alaska and help us protect what we all love, the Tongass National Forest and Inside Passage. A photo is worth a thousand words, especially when talking to busy policymakers. When you share pictures, they are added to our online map and album (with credit given to you) and used when we talk to policymakers about the Tongass and Inside Passage. There they become part of a powerful collective voice for conservation in Southeast, building a compelling visual story of the places we love and want to protect.

    University of Alaska is Racing to Log its Haines Trust Parcels

    The University of Alaska is racing ahead with plans to clearcut their lands in Haines instead of looking at practicable alternatives – like options that keep the forest standing and earn revenue by banking the carbon.    The sale, proposed on some 13,000 acres of university lands, is a losing deal for the University and residents of Haines and Klukwan. These lands include those bordering both sides of the Klehini River within the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve; the lower Takhin and Kicking Horse Rivers; steep slopes above Pyramid and Taiyasanka Harbors; and Glacier Point. All of these lands are important to locals and visitors who wish to experience the authentic version of a wild Alaska that keeps us here and safeguards our salmon, water, wildlife, and communities.

    Wrangell Screening of Irreparable Harm

    IH.poster.jpgStart the Birding Festival off strong with SEACC! Be the first in Wrangell to see SEACC’s new film, Irreparable Harm, about the Southeast community of Angoon, Hawk Inlet (Weinedel), and the potential impact of the nearby Greens Creek Mine. As the only mine in the country allowed to operate in a national monument, Greens Creek is mandated to cause no irreparable harm to Admiralty Island National Monument, but tests show this might not be the case.

    The film is set on Admiralty Island in the small Tlingit community of Angoon where people have looked to the bounty of the sea to provide sustenance and their livelihoods for thousands of years. You will hear from community members living there today who worry about the impacts of the mine on the marine life they rely on and follow scientists from Southeast as they try and answer the question, has the mine caused ‘irreparable harm’?

    SEACC staff will be in town and will lead a short post-film discussion. 

    No tickets necessary! 

    Want to host the film in a different community? Contact Bryn Fluharty at bryn@seacc.org or call 907-586-6942 for more information.
