Organization Overview

Tyonek Tribal Conservation District [TTCD] is a 501c3 nonprofit that addresses local conservation and resource management issues in the Tyonek, Alaska area. Our tagline is “Subsistence is our Agriculture”. TTCD was founded in 2004 as the first tribal conservation district in Alaska. Our district boundaries mirror Alaska Fish & Game Management Unit 16B, covering nearly 6.6 million acres of habitat and multiple communities. Since 2004, we have grown to be an emerging leader in tribal conservation. Our four focus areas are: Habitat and Restoration, landowner Technical Assistance, Tyonek Grown and Tyonek Youth Conservation Science. We partner with numerous tribal organizations, state and federal agencies and fellow nonprofits to achieve our goals.

New Website Objectives

To serve as a hub for conservation information, scientific data, partnership networking, and storytelling for the Tyonek Tribal Conservation District.  For many people, experiencing the conservation district will not be possible due to its remote nature. Our website is a window for people to be able to experience the district, learn about the people that call it home and learn about the area’s resources.

Primary Objective: Create a website that tells the story of TTCD, the Tebughna People and our conservation projects in a visually appealing and compelling manner.

Additional Objectives: Provide access to local stakeholders and decision makers for available conservation-related data

Additional Objectives: The website is a resource for scientists/technical experts working in the field.

Additional Objectives: The public learns more about and supports tribally-led conservation.

Additional Objectives: Youth and public become more knowledgeable about their role(s) in the district’s conservation activities.

Additional Objectives: Funders and donors see TTCD’s activities as a good investment.

Additional Objectives: TTCD staff are able to easily and consistently update website content in-house.

Audiences: District community members and decision makers, scientists/technical experts, agency and conservation partners, people interested in tribally-led conservation/conservation within Alaska.
