    Comment on the largest old-growth timber sale in nearly 30 years!

    The forests on Prince of Wales Island are under threat from the largest old-growth timber sale on the Tongass in nearly 30 years! The Prince of Wales Landscape Level Analysis (POWLLA) project was recently approved by the Forest Service and could result in the clearcutting of roughly 235 million board feet of old-growth forest across about 23,000 acres. The sale would take place over the next 15 years. The Forest Service is currently taking public comment, meaning this is our opportunity to speak up!

    FOREST CURRENTS The Power of Local Action WHAT ARE WE FOLLOWING? Utah's Roadless Rule On February 28th, Utah Governor Gary Herbert followed the State of Alaska’s lead and filed a petition asking the federal government to craft a Utah specific Roadless Rule. Similar to Alaska, this is an attempt to remove public authority over public lands, a way to open up more acres to habitat-destructive road building and industrial logging.   SEACC supporters can stand in solidarity with our friends in Utah by speaking up for the National Roadless Rule. Together we will join Utahns to ensure the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) hears that people want to keep the National Roadless Rule on the Tongass and Utah’s National Forest. Both in Utah and Alaska, local voices are always potent, but locals are not the only ones the Forest Service needs to hear from. Be sure to sign the pledge to defend the National Roadless Rule on the Tongass and share it with your friends and family.

    Assembly Chambers, Public Safety Building - 213 Haines Highway

    Come out for Clean Water in Haines!

    The Haines Borough Assembly is holding public hearings on the proposed Aqueous Hazardous Waste Storage ordinance! This ordinance prohibits the storage of hazardous waste like mining slurry within one mile of surface waters like the Chilkat River and its tributaries.

    The meeting will be held in the Assembly Chambers, Public Safety Building - 213 Haines Highway starting at 6:30 PM.

    State and federal regulations offer very little protection against toxic mining waste. But, we have the power to protect our home from toxic waste by using our local government to adopt regulations appropriate to our community.

    Let's fill the Assembly Chambers to show the Haines Borough Assembly that we care about where toxic waste can be stored within our Borough.
