Natural Resources and Conservation

The Natural Resources and Conservation Division within the DNR will conserve, protect, and enhance habitats for fish, wildlife, and cultural resources for the continuing benefit of the Tribal citizenry. Services offered to the Pokagon Band include conservation, management, and propagation of the Tribe's fish and wildlife resources. These services will be offered through 3 main services:

  • Terrestrial (forest/woodland) and aquatic habitat (rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands) assessment

  • Restoration of lost or declining habitat and vegitation

  • Management of culturally significant habitat such as Black Ash swamps and Sugar maple forests will include conservation, management, and species propagation
