DNR’s Tribal Relations Program committed to productive, government-to-government cooperation

Canoe journey 2012
Nearly 100 canoes arrived in Olympia on July 29 for the last leg of the 2012 Canoe Journey., hosted this year by the Squaxin Island Tribe. Hundreds – maybe thousands – of families and spectators greeted the paddlers, some of whom began their journey on July 9. More information at http://www.paddletosquaxin2012.org.

Throughout the year, Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark, the tribes and DNR work together to address natural resources issues important to all. Our tribal relations manager helps DNR and the tribes coordinate numerous  efforts involving natural resources, and other issues concerning the tribal geoduck fishery, watershed restoration, the 5.6 million acres of state trust lands DNR manages, and other shared concerns.
