The Tongass is America’s largest National Forest covering 17 million acres of Southeast Alaska. Discovering the Tongass focuses on the confluence of nature and culture in the forest - including an ancient salmon spawning site where bears feast while people observe them, and inside a Haida community’s carving shed where a yellow cedar is transformed into a totem pole representing ancestral history.
