Forest Service to start improvements on Wrangell blueberry lands next spring
September 28, 2022
Next spring, the Forest Service will begin thinning portions of second-growth forest around Nemo Loop to improve blueberry yields in those areas.
The blueberry enhancement project is a collaborative effort between the borough and the Forest Service. It has been funded by a $100,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The grant is part of the USDA’s Southeast Sustainability Initiative. The initiative seeks to partner with Alaska Native corporations and municipal governments to bolster local economies and improve food security throughout Southeast.
