Welcome to Our Watersheds...

The Chilkat, Chilkoot and Ferebee Watersheds surround Haines, Alaska. We are blessed with healthy and productive watersheds and believe it is our shared responsibility to pass these gifts on to the next generation. Whether you enjoy the Takshanuk Watersheds as a fisherman, hunter, photographer, hiker, skiier, boater, visitor, forester, or otherwise, look around, learn something new, and get involved. Then, go and enjoy the beauty of Alaska that is just outside the door
