What does a natural resources department do?
The Tribe’s Enterprise Waters, overseen by the EBCI Natural Resources Department, are legendary for large fish and a full-limit catch while fishing. What happens behind the scenes, however, takes a lot of work and is just as impressive. You may not know, for instance, that the department is also charged with the management and maintenance of healthy, clean waters suitable for mammals, fish, and aquatic life, as well as the planning and hosting of recreation activities, offering assistance with crops, and helping to ensure safe drinking water. If it sounds like a lot of work, it is. The Natural Resources Department remains dedicated and ever vigilant in terms of the conservation and sustainability of all Cherokee water sources.
