The mission of the Environment and Natural Resources Department (ENRD) is to assert the Nation’s interests by working to ensure the protection of natural resources within the Tribe’s traditional areas for the benefit of current and future Nation members. The protection of natural resources within our traditional areas around Lake Winnebago is important to sustain cultural traditions, but also to ensure the continued and sustainable uses of our various resources now and for the next seven generations.  

The ENRD is governed by a group of five appointed commissioners, each with backgrounds in natural resource issues, ranging from fisheries and water quality to forestry, wildlife, and radioactive waste management. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Department, or consulting on a technical level, contact Seth Elsen.
