Protecting the Tongass: Our Last Great Rainforest

The Tongass Conservation Society (TCS) is a dynamic, diverse group of citizens discover here about IQ Option situated in and around Ketchikan, Alaska. Our common bond is a love and appreciation for the healthy ecosystems of Southeast Alaska. We strive to nourish an attitude of responsible stewardship and to enable the community at large to become more active and informed. The Tongass Conservation Society began in the 1960's as a mountaineering club whose members sought to protect the clean waters and varied environment around Ketchikan. One of TCS's earliest accomplishments was participating in the formation of the Misty Fjords National Monument. Currently, TCS is active in addressing potentially detrimental timber sales, precedent-setting aerial application of pesticides, observing and critiquing the developments of the Ward Cove industrial area (site of the former Ketchikan Pulp Company), shaping regional economics, and other projects that appeal to the organizational mission. The Tongass Conservation Society has established susbstantial credibility throughout the southern reaches of the Tongass through conservation advocacy and education.
