Chugach National Forest, and especially Prince William Sound, takes in some of the most extraordinary scenery and protected wilderness in Alaska, if not the entire United States. Charles Wohlforth shares what he learned when he attended the Chugach National Forest town hall meeting, hosted by the Sierra Club.  The U.S. Forest Service discusses their update of the forest plan, and you’ll hear from people who think that’s both a good and a bad idea. It’s a hot issue right now, and you can form you own opinion and get involved, on the next Outdoor Explorer.

  • Laura Comer, organizer with Sierra Club
