Lynn Canal Conservation is a grassroots conservation organization based in Haines, Alaska. The communities of Lynn Canal depend on a healthy environment to provide jobs, subsistence foods, recreation, and quality of life. LCC has a long-term commitment to the health of fish and wildlife populations and to regulations that promote clean water and stream protections for watersheds important to commercial, sport and subsistence salmon fisheries.

The Alaska Division of Forestry has released a scoping document that outlines proposed timber harvest and other activities that will occur in the Haines State Forest from 2018 - 2022.


Welcome LCC's first ever Executive Director!

Elsa Sebastian originally hails from a small fishing village on Prince of Wales Island, and has been drawn to Haines to help protect our wild salmon runs from multiple threats, including mine development, industrial scale clearcutting and ill-conceived highway projects in the Chilkat watershed. She’s a believer in the power of grassroots organizing and local ecological knowledge.  Learn more about Elsa on our Staff & Board page.
