Sitka Conservation Society

About Us

Sitka Conservation Society (SCS) has been working to protect the temperate rainforest of southeast Alaska and Sitka’s quality of life since 1967. We are based in the small coastal town of Sitka, Alaska, located on the west coast of Baranof Island in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. The Tongass National Forest, at 17 million acres, is the largest national forest in the U.S.and the largest remaining temperate rainforest in the world. The Tongass, which comprises almost all of Southeast Alaska, is managed by the U.S. Forest Service, but it is owned by all U.S.citizens.

Our Mission
