Chugach National Forest
The second largest national forest in the U.S. covers 5.3 million acres of land, extending south and east of Anchorage along the southcentral Alaskan coast. It encompasses most of the Prince William Sound area and the 700,000-acre Copper River Delta, which is the largest contiguous wetland area remaining on the western coast of the U.S.
Tongass National Forest
Occupying the "panhandle" or southeastern portion of Alaska, the 17-million acre Tongass is the largest national forest in the U.S. It is a glimmering rain forest full of glaciers, spectacular scenery, mountains, waterways, and thousands of islands separated by straits and channels. It is home to more than 400 species of terrestrial and marine wildlife, fish, and shellfish.
