2012 North Tongass Shoreline Feedback

 
Who do you see using the Tongass National Forest? The Forest Service is seeking information about outfitter and guide use on Admiralty Island National Monument and on the Sitka, Hoonah, and Juneau Ranger Districts. This review will inform a determination of the amount and types of outfitter and guide use that will be allowed on a large portion of the northern Tongass National Forest (see map). Your comments will improve understanding of current use and user experiences and will help focus the environmental review. We appreciate your time in completing this survey with as much detail as possible.
