Celebrate Alaska’s Forests: IYF in Alaska!

Alaska’s Forests—the Tongass and Chugach National Forests—are pleased to announce the kick-off of a year’s worth of events and the release of a collectible poster series to commemorate the International Year of Forests (IYF). This year, International Year of Forests provides countless opportunities to take a fresh look at your Alaska National Forests.

In recognition of the strong connection Alaskans have with their national forests, the Alaska celebration is themed, Alaska’s Forests: More Than A Place to Visit – It’s Where We Live! Four beautiful, collectible posters bring this theme to life and speak to the role and importance of forests in our daily lives. The first one, making its debut today, is Explore Your Backyard – in the months ahead, it will be followed by Celebrate Your Heritage, Cherish Your Inheritance, and Find Your Inspiration. The posters are free to the public and can be picked up at any Forest Service office in Alaska.

In addition to the poster series, several signature events planned throughout the year will highlight the strong ties among Alaska’s forests and local, national, and international communities.
