Tongass resource specialists gather results of monitoring efforts throughout the forest into the report which addresses areas such as air quality, biodiversity, fish habitat, heritage resources, recreation and tourism, scenery resource, wildlife, soil and water, and much more.
"The report is a great way for the public to see how we're doing managing their lands," said Tongass National Forest Supervisor Forrest Cole. "It also serves as a point of reference to help us achieve our future land-stewardship goals."
The monitoring report includes an executive summary highlighting forest programs in fiscal 2004 and a compact disc. It also is available for viewing on the Tongass website.
