Department of Agricultural & Natural Resources
Our mission is to preserve and instill generational stewardship. We work with community members who carry traditional ecological knowledge that better informs the work we do with our water, animal, plant, mineral, and forest resources. The information and insight that we collect from community members is incorporated into a method of work performed and influences the outcome by demonstrating cultural inclusion. This approach is key in preserving our cultural knowledge. It in turn informs the next generation of scientists working in the landscape.
With each new year, the bar is raised on what we can attain through dedication and hard work. Our staff members remain focused on strategic goals that drive their work. We address unforeseen daily challenges with a smile. Our team is committed to providing exceptional services to the Cherokee community.
