Environmental Services

We strive to ensure that indigenous plants of this area are protected when needed and also available for tribal members to gather.

The environmental division of the natural resource department provides general administrative guidance for and reviews departmental and division programs. It also provides records, file maintenance, management, and GIS services for the Department of Natural Resources and other Permanent Fund Departments and Divisions. We also manage permitting of various materials for those who wish to gather on Tribally owned land.
