Welcome to the Tongass!
On our continent's shimmering western edge lies a mist-shrouded place of emerald islands with towering ancient spruce, rugged mountains, abundant wildlife and fast-running rivers bursting with fish. It is our Tongass National Forest — America’s rainforest in southeast Alaska. It is a place where we do not have to talk about how things used to be, but can appreciate what we have today.
