Our commitment to environmental stewardship is deep-rooted and tied to a tradition and history with the land and our way of life. Our programs are nationally-recognized for excellence:
- The Tribes spend over $10 million a year on natural resources and land management to protect and enhance those resources on the Reservation.
- We maintain strict environmental standards for air and water quality.
- We are the first tribe in the nation to designate our own wilderness area, the Mission Mountains Wilderness Area.
- Under the cooperative management agreement between the Tribes and the State of Montana, thousands of acres on the Flathead Reservation are open to non-Tribal members for fishing and bird hunting on the Flathead Reservation.
