Alaska has always had an impression of mystery…

Info about the Tongass National Forest

With over 16 million acres, the Tongass National Forest in Southeastern Alaska (Juneau) is the largest national forest in the U.S.

Due to its remote location, the forest contains many endangered and rare animal and plant species.

In July 1908, the Alexander Archipelago Forest Reserve and the Tongass National Forest Park, created in Roosevelt’s presidential declaration, merged to form a forest covering most of southeastern Alaska.
