Agricultural and Natural Resources Technical Assistance
We install Best Management projects on tribal farm land that keeps soil, fertilizer and pesticides on farm fields and out of waterways. Renewable Energy program encourages alternative energy sources that will save the tribe money and address climate change. Many of our projects change every year dependent on funding, community needs and interests. We provide environmental planning support for community projects such as trails, landscaping and stormwater.
