Children’s Forest teens meet Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan
This past winter, four Alaska teens traveled to DC to celebrate the lighting of the 2015 Capitol Christmas Tree and share their experiences as Chugach Children’s Forest participants. While in DC the youth met with the Chief of the Forest Service, Tom Tidwell, and other Forest Service staff and the Alaska congressional delegation. They shared their connection to the Chugach Children’s Forest, experiences they’ve had on Children’s Forest expeditions, their passion for stewardship, and their ideas on how to engage diverse Alaska youth in the outdoors.
