About San Carlos Apache Forest Resources Program
The San Carlos Apache Tribe’s respect for the natural world is rooted in a tradition of environmental stewardship. Today, the Forest Resources Program of the San Carlos Apache Tribe continues this deep-rooted tribal practice by planning and implementing natural resource management plans that work toward the healthy landscape conditions of pre-reservation times. Additionally, the Forest Resources Program also provides natural resource education and outreach as well as assistance for college.
