OUR VISION

“The mission of the Natural Resources Department is to protect treaty rights of the natural resources of the Point No Point Treaty area for the benefit of Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal members and future descendants. In this capacity; the Department is charged with ensuring the orderly harvest of fish, shellfish and wildlife resources, providing opportunities for Tribal members to derive subsistence and/or livelihood from the harvest of these resources, increasing opportunity through restoration, enhancement and scientific study, and reversing the decline of these resources resulting from environmental degradation. “
