Misty Fiords National Monument

3031 Tongass Avenue
Ketchikan, AK 99901


In 1978, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed over 2,200,000 acres as the Misty Fiords National Monument. In 1980, this acreage got reduced to 2,142,243 acres but was now congressionally designated as Misty Fior
ds National Monument Wilderness and still remains the largest wilderness area on the Tongass National Forest.  Due to this designation, it is now strategically managed to continue the preservation of this undeveloped, enduring ecosystem for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
