Our backyard transboundary corridor.

Receipt of the new IfSAR-generated bare-earth layer in October, 2015, inspired me to extend Juneau’s surficial geology mapping toward the Canadian border. T’aakú Kwáan place names are from Thornton & Martin, 2012.

The standout feature of Taku Province is the river itself, one of a handful of international rivers serving as corridors between coastal rain forest and boreal interior. It’s partly due to this lowland connectivity that Taku Province has 36 mammal species, second only to Chilkat Province in diversity. (Lynn Canal Province is third). It’s also probable that the Juneau area has the highest bird diversity in Southeast (Paul Suchanek, pers comm).

 

The only substantial extent of large-tree forest (dark green) in Taku Province was in Hobart Bay, and this was logged by Goldbelt Corporation.
