Skies fill with bald eagles, bears scavenge salmon on wild beaches and the ocean teems with breaching whales, porpoises and sea lions.

Living Landscapes of SG̱ang Gwaay: Strengthening the land and people in a changing climate

In the winter of 2018, a hurricane force windstorm event blew down over a hundred trees at SG̱ang Gwaay Llnagaay. Massive tree roots were upended, which lifted ancient floorboards of longhouses and exposed invaluable cultural artifacts and seed banks. The blowdown damage provided an exciting opportunity to delve deeper into the history of the village, and to breathe Haida environmental and cultural stewardship into this landscape.
