The Hoonah Native Forest Partnership (HNFP) is a powerful example of a landscape-scale community planning process in Southeast Alaska. It successfully drove collaboration between major regional landowners, land managers, tribes, and the local community to leverage federal funding and accomplish an enormous amount of data collection and analysis. This data led to recommendations for an all lands approach to future conservation, restoration, and natural resources management projects. Building the capacity of a local workforce was an important goal of the HNFP.
The SSP believes that sharing information and knowledge from the ground up, and from community to community is essential for building a more resilient Southeast.
That is why our partners sponsored this comprehensive review of HNFP, best practices, and lessons learned.
