Private land owned by an Alaska Native Village Corporation is used for sustainable tourism, thus providing an alternative economic return on the land from other possible uses that would have much greater impact (such as logging, mineral extraction, large-scale tourism resort, etc).
Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge : located on a privately owned, remote beach inside Alaska’s Kachemak Bay State Park, midway between the villages of Seldovia and Halibut Cove. The Lodge is run completely on a non-polluting, alternative energy system of wind and hydro power which supply the entire grounds with energy to spare. Approved for people and planet.
