Our Mission

The Forest County Potawatomi Natural Resources Department has the mission to follow the guidance established by the Tribal Constitution “…to conserve and develop our common resources and to promote the welfare of ourselves and our descendants.” Conservation and enhancement of resources is accomplished through monitoring, research, restoration, education and outreach with consideration of both western science and traditional ecological knowledge of the Potawatomi People.

The Department ensures compliance with, and enforcement of, Federal and Tribal environmental and cultural/historic preservation regulations. By assuming an active role in land use planning, management and implementation, the Department ensures the natural and cultural resources may persist for future generations.”—2016
