After a long two years of having to mostly do outreach and community engagement from behind a computer screen, I couldn’t be more excited to be back visiting Prince of Wales from Sunday, May 1, through Wednesday, May 4! SEACC is coming back to renew old friendships and grow new ones. I am always awed by the abundance of the land and the waters and the culture of Prince of Wales.
Joining me will be Climate Program Manager Matt Jackson from Sitka. But even better, we will be hosted by Environmental Policy Analyst Katie Rooks and Tongass Forest Program Manager Maranda Hamme — our new staff on the island!
Here’s our schedule of events. I hope we’ll see you at one — or all — of them!
On Monday night, May 2, we’re taking over The Craig Inn Bar (403 Water Street) starting at 6 p.m. for a Southeast Alaska Trivia night! The winner earns a bag of SEACC swag and a drink on us!
On Tuesday night, May 3, we have our headline event: A Town Hall Listening Session at the Craig Tribal Hall (1330 Craig-Klawock Highway). The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. We’ll have food, a town hall-style Q&A, and interactive booths where you can let SEACC know what your highest priorities for the Tongass are.
If you want to meet with me or Matt while we’re in town, reach out or join us at one of these events. And don’t miss your chance to meet our new team members Maranda and Katie.
We’re excited to talk with you!
