Kootznoowoo Improved Forest Management
The Bluesource – Kootznoowoo Project protects 20,159 acres of forest across four project areas on the Dolomi and Dora Baytracts of Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. It is owned by the native Kootznoowoo people and co-managed by the U.S. Forest Service. This project ensures the long-term sustainable management of the area, which could otherwise undergo significant commercial timber harvesting. Approximately 8,000 acres of the project property is old-growth forest. The land hosts many different types of prized berries and animal habitats, including 12 fish-bearing streams.
