Environmental

The Environmental program provides training activities, educational assistance, and coordination of statewide projects. The Native Lands & Resources (NLR) department continues to contribute to the capacity growth within Alaska tribes and provides a wide variety of services to assist tribes as they address local and regional environmental issues with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded projects.

State & Tribal Response Program (STRP)

The State & Tribal Response Program (STRP) is designed to give tribes funding to identify, inventory, assess, and develop a plan responding to potentially contaminated sites (land or water) that are presently too unhealthy for safe usage, but may be used again through rehabilitation.

Traditional Ecological Knowledge Survey – Your Input Needed

Tlingit & Haida and the State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) invite you to participate in an important survey regarding Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in the transboundary watersheds. This TEK survey is an initial attempt at understanding community concerns in transboundary watersheds. Concerns over pollutants entering Alaskan waterways from upstream Canadian mining operations is a growing concern amongst Southeast Alaskan residents. 

This is a research project being conducted by Tlingit & Haida and the ADEC. The survey relates to an Alaska Clean Water Action Stewardship activity and the information gathered will help guide future discussions and identify areas of priority.

Thank you for your time and valuable input!
