the Upper Lynn Canal for over 45 years

Our mission 

For 45 years LCC has been committed to fostering responsible stewardship of the Chilkat Valley watersheds as well as the coastal areas of the upper Lynn Canal. We monitor proposed projects that could have an impact on the integrity of local ecosystems. We work to mitigate potential environmental impacts, to build coalitions with other concerned groups, and to increase community awareness of such impacts.

who we serve 

LCC works on conservation issues that impact public lands and waters in northern Southeast Alaska.  This includes the highly productive Chilkat and Chilkoot watersheds, Tongass National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands, and the state managed Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve and Haines State Forest. 

These lands and waters are spectacularly scenic and provide outstanding habitat for all five species of wild Pacific salmon, black and brown bear, moose, lynx, mountain goat, wolves, wolverine, coyotes, fox, marten, mink, river otter, trumpeter swans, sea lions, whales, porpoise, seals, bald eagles, and numerous species of forest and shore birds and waterfowl.
