tongass-red-aldertongass-red-alderOur Sitka Community Catalyst (Marjorie) developed this briefing sheet to share information about a project that she coordinated at the Sitka Conservation Society. Marjorie worked in partnership with the Sitka Fine Arts camp, a local miller and local builders to show off the beauty of Tongass red alder in a premiere Sitka location. Red alder wainscoating was installed in the Allen Memorial Hall along with Tongass spruce trim boards milled in Hoonah at the Icy Straits Mill as well as restored douglas fir from historical buildings in Sitka.
