New report explores tourism's impact on rural Alaska community
Date:12/7/2007

A new general technical report published by the Pacific Northwest Research Station examines the growth and development of the tourism industry in Hoonah, Alaskaa Tlingit community located along Icy Strait in the southeast portion of the state.

The report, titled Sociocultural Effects of Tourism in Hoonah, Alaska, describes the development of the tourism industry in the rural community, explores tourisms effects on community life and resource use, and presents residents perceptions of tourisms impact on the environment and social life.

The Hoonah community study that generated findings for this new report is part of a larger research project on tourism and recreation in southeast Alaska. Two other Alaska communities were studied as part of the project: Haines, which was featured in a report published in 2004; and Craig, which will be profiled in a forthcoming title. In 2005, a comprehensive summary of all of the projects findings was published.

Results from these studies will help planners better understand the factors involved in the relationship between tourism growth and community well-being. These findings also may be useful in making decisions about tourism management and recreation development.

An electronic copy of the publication currently is available online at http://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/pubs/pnw_gtr734.pdf. Printed copies will be available December 7.
