The vision of the Department of Natural Resource is to provide long-term cultural, social, political, and economic stability to the Nez Perce Tribe.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
The Department of Natural Resources consists of the Land Services, Cultural Resources, Wildlife Resources, Forest Resources, Water Resources, and Environmental Restoration and Waste Management Divisions.
