If you want to keep up with what the U.S. Forest Service is up to in Alaska check out their new newsletter, "SourDough Notes."
The new electronic SourDough Notes will allow the Alaska Region to reach a broader audience and to publish in color. Through the electronic version, the Forest Service will share stories from Alaska’s two national forests—the Tongass and Chugach—and beyond.
Here’s just a peek at what is on the Web right now:
Go to Rio de Janeiro with Tongass ecologist Rick Turner on a search for the critically endangered plant, the Empress of Brazil—found only in mountains north of the city
See photos of a new fungus discovered on the Chugach National Forest
Get ready for the Chugach National Forest Centennial Celebration o Mendenhall icebergs for KTOO radio staff
Oooh fungus porn! Seriously the most recent issue does have some great information and some neat articles for anglers interested in Alaska.
