Natural Resources

The Natural Resources Department is charged with preserving, protecting and restoring natural resources important to Samish Tribal Members for now and future generations.

We are involved in environmental monitoring, protection and restoration in marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments. Our projects include a wide range of activities from stormwater monitoring, plant and animal population studies and climate change analysis to full scale beach and river restoration projects and marine debris removal. We use traditional ecological knowledge and insights from Tribal members to influence our work to ensure availability of traditional use materials and native foods for current and future generations. The department also provides mapping services for the entire organization and participates in outreach events on behalf of the Tribe.
