Washington’s tribal government leaders are building a better future for all of us by investing in public safety, education, and jobs.

Natural Resources

Tribal natural resource programs play an important role in balancing the sustainable harvest of salmon, timber and other resources with environmental restoration and the protection of sensitive species and habitats.

Washington Tribes are committed to maintaining this balance, from the Tulalip Tribes work to restore native fish habitat while also increasing hatchery salmon production on rivers like the Skykomish, to the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe's work to improve shellfish productivity in Sequim Bay and the Colville Tribe's new sustainable timber management and mill operations near Omak.

Washington's rich natural resources provide thousands of jobs for tribal members and non-tribal members alike. Our state's Native American tribes are committed to making investments in smart natural resources management practices so that our resources can be productive for many generations to come.
