Gunnuk Creek North

KAKE  |  1,430 ACRES  |  CONSERVED IN 2001

Donated in May of 2001, this 1,430-acre conservation easement supports an assortment of mammals, fish, and bird species. Intensively logged in the 70’s and 80’s Southeast Alaska Land Trust accepted an conservation easement to provide for the natural and sustained rehabilitation of coastal forest habitat into perpetuity. By prohibiting future resource extraction the easement protects not only the natural potential of the area, but also a culture dependent on fishing and the local water supply. By providing a pure and clear source of water 65 million salmon fry will achieve proper incubation within the down stream hatchery and 850 local residents will drink peacefully.
