SEACC's new Tongass Forest Manager outlines priorities on Action Line

    SEACC's new Tongass Forest Manager Chiara D'Angelo

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The new Tongass Forest Manager for the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council has identified her top priorities for the job.

    Chiara D'Angelo said on Action Line that there are two top priorities for people engaged in working on conservation in the Tongass National Forest and the Tongass in general.  "Those two priorities are protecting fair leaning old growth forests in roaded areas and obviously restoring the Roadless Rule protections on the Tongass National Forests."

    The Biden Administration is reviewing the Alaska Specific Roadless Rule that was spearheaded by the previous Trump Administration.

    SEACC Executive Director Meredith wants a permanent outcome to that matter.  "One can feel impatient because that order specifies a process, not an outcome."

    Trainor says she doesn't want to have the same fight over and over again.
