Environment

Tulalip takes the lead in preserving and restoring its land and waters. Tulalip accomplishes this goal by not only establishing environmentally friendly building practices but by dedicating various departments to environmental rehabilitation. These departments include a salmon hatchery, a state-of-the-art waste water treatment facility, a forestry program and a shellfish and wildlife recovery program.

Environmental preservation is important for the culture of the Tulalip Tribes. Tulalip Tribal members have always used the resources of the land and water to live. Keeping the land and water healthy allows Tribal members to practice their culture through fishing, hunting, gathering of berries and herbs and using cedar to make baskets, hats and clothing.
