Touring lands on Back Loop Road
Discovery Southeast and the Southeast Alaska Land Trust (SEALT) have similar missions. Discovery works with our human future, and SEALT with our homeland’s future. Neither’s mission is really complete without the other.
This weekend, Discovery and SEALT offered interpretive walks through adjacent lands off River Road in central Áak’w Táak, inland from little lake (Mendenhall Valley). Interest was high, so we added an overflow outing. In total we guided about 50 avid bushwackers, of all ages and abilities, through this entrancing post-glacial landscape.
