Tutshi Lake/T’ooch’ Áayi Conservancy was established as a result of the Wóoshtin Wudidaa Atlin Taku Land Use Plan and Taku River Tlingit First Nation Strategic Engagement Agreement.
The conservancy, located approximately 65 kilometres northwest of Atlin, encompasses the eastern half of Tutshi Lake. Tutshi Lake is culturally significant to the Carcross/Tagish and Taku River Tlingit First Nations.
The lake also has high value lake trout habitat. The Tlingit name (T’ooch’ Áayi) means “charcoal lake”, after the dark colour of the lake water.
This site is under construction; more information on this conservancy will be added when it becomes available.
