Our MissionDistrict Boundary

The Tyonek Tribal Conservation District (TTCD) is a non-regulatory, nonprofit 501c3 organization that addressees local issues through community-driven conservation. Our mission is to conserve, enhance, and encourage the wise use of the natural resources. The District shares its boundaries with Game Management Unit 16B, and includes Tyonek, Beluga, Shirleyville, Alexander Creek, and Skwentna. The role of the TTCD is to provide technical and financial assistance to landowners and stakeholders within the District to help them achieve their conservation goals.

Core Values

TTCD is guided by two core values:

  • Meet the needs of district stakeholders
  • Foster cooperative relationships

Strategic Directions

The Tyonek Tribal Conservation District has four strategic directions:

  • Monitor and restore fish and wildlife habitat.
  • Improve food security through community agriculture.
  • Support sustainable practices through waste reduction and energy conservation.
  • Provide conservation education and outreach.

This week, the Tyonek Grown Program and Tebughna School hosted a visit from Farmer Nick and Fiskars’ Orange Thumb Project. Tebughna students talked about food systems, ate celery snacks grown by our Garden Youth Team, and quizzed Nick about his plant-based career. Then we got our hands in the dirt and harvested over 150 pounds of potatoes together!Thank you to Fiskars for supporting the Tyonek Community Garden and providing new gardening tools for our team this season! And thank you to Farmer Nick for learning more about food security efforts in rural Alaska and sharing stories of your experiences with us on Instagram! Please come back to help in the garden any time. www.fiskars.com/en-us/special-feature/project-orange-thumbwww.farmernick.com/ttcd.org/programs/tyonek-grown-program/ See MoreSee Less

Yesterday, a team from CIRI arrived at the Tyonek Community Garden to help our crew freshen up the wash shed with a beautiful coat of blue paint and white trim. The wash shed is an important space in the garden for gathering, learning, hosting visitors, and harvesting throughout the summer. We were thrilled to brighten up this space with an enthusiastic group of volunteers who also supplied the paint and materials!Thank you CIRI for your ongoing support of TTCD’s fish passage and community garden projects! We’re so glad that the weather was in your favor this day. And what a great legacy this year’s Garden Youth Team is leaving before they start heading back to school in the near future. It’s bittersweet to say goodbye as you all head into your next adventures this fall, but we can’t wait to continue building on these efforts with you in the garden again next year. See MoreSee Less
