The Chugach Alaska Corporation region includes the communities of Cordova, Seward, Valdez, Whittier, Port Graham, Chenega Bay, Eyak, Nanwalek (English Bay) and Tatitlek. Our region includes more than 5,000 miles of coastline along the southern tip of the Kenai Peninsula, through the Kenai Fjords, Prince William Sound and Gulf of Alaska.
The lands of our region are rich in timber, minerals and wildlife. The majestic fjords, bays and waterways are home to a diverse population of fish, birds and marine mammals, and the diverse landscape ranges from mountains and glaciers to dense forests of hemlock and spruce. Spectacular scenery and recreational activities are the focus of tourism opportunities.
Approximately 550,000 acres of Chugach land are subsurface estate where Native village corporations have surface entitlements. Our lands are the foundation of our corporation and our culture, and utilization of the land for economic purposes is closely balanced with subsistence use, archeological research and historic preservation.
