AK Forests Continue Poster Series, Celebrate Wilderness 50th

As part of the year-long celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, the Chugach and Tongass National Forest annual poster series highlights Forest Service wilderness in Alaska.
Congressionally-designated wilderness makes up one-third of the lands on the Tongass National Forest, where 19 separate wilderness areas cover 5.8 million acres. The Chugach National Forest manages the Congressionally-designated Nellie Juan-College Fiord Wilderness Study Area, which encompasses over one-third of that forest.

Pick the posters up for free at any Forest Service office in Alaska!
