The NHBP Environmental Department holds the responsibility of sustainably preserving and protecting the land, water, air and wildlife for the next Seven Generations for the NHBP Community.

The Environmental Department relies on both traditional methods, as well as scientists, technical support and administrative personnel to focus on the environmental needs of future generations of NHBP Tribal Members.

The Environmental Department supervises natural resource-based programs such as maple syrup production, Wild Rice harvesting and natural resource access. The Environmental Department also receives questions and requests that involve natural resource management, water and air quality, garden produce distribution, and hunting and gathering.
