Natural Resources Project Reviews

The Natural Resources Department (NRD) is tasked with facilitating “the development of institutions of tribal self-governance to ensure the continued sovereignty of the Bad River Tribe in the regulation and management of its natural resources” by enforcing the environmental codes and ordinances passed by the Tribal Council that protect the natural resources of the Reservation for the next seven generations.

Below is information and forms for the Project Review Process. This process was supported by the Bad River Tribal Council through motion on August 1, 2018.
