Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska's Tongass Rain Forest, a new book from Braided River, tells the story of the Tongass rain forest where life interconnects in unexpected ways. In this biologically rich coastal ecosystem, humpback whales, orcas and sea lions cruise the forested shorelines. Millions of wild salmon swim upstream into the forest, feeding bears and bald eagles. Native cultures and local communities benefit from the gifts of both the forest and the sea.
Join Amy Gulick as she takes us on an unforgettable journey to one of the rarest ecosystems on Earth. A book signing will follow the presentation.
This free public presentation is sponsored by Braided River, The Mountaineers and Alaska Wilderness League.
