This report describes a community-based approach to land management for the traditional territory of the Keex’ Kwaan people (Kake) area that focuses on balancing salmon and deer habitat productivity with a sustainable approach to old-growth logging. The report was co-written by the SSP coordinator in 2011 and represents an evolutionary step in developing a community-based approach to ecological conservation that was started with the Hoonah Community Forest Report in 2008.
