Our 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 a local high school tech program and local volunteers to demonstrate the utility of young growth wood products through the construction of a really nice bike shelter for the community of Sitka.

Click here to visit the SCS web site to learn more about this and other projects they are doing to demonstrate the utility of Tongass young-growth wood products.
SCS also put together a very cool video of the construction process that you can view here.
