When you’re located in the middle of a temperate rainforest, with State Parks, a Rainforest Sanctuary and beaches on three sides, it’s a bit difficult to ignore nature and all the wildlife within. Not that you’d want to. Consider getting a great overview of the Tongass National Forest over at the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center and then get out and spend some time discovering it for yourself! You can experience the Tongass and all its many inhabitants in several ways—by land, air or sea!
