The mission of the Society is to promote the prudent use of natural resources on Tribal lands. This can only be accomplished through the dedication and hard work of all Society members.  Awards for the “Biologist” and “Conservation Officer of the Year” will be given to two individuals, on a yearly basis, who best exemplifies his or her dedication and hard work.  To honor these two individuals is not intended to diminish the contributions of other individuals, but to reflect the accomplishments of the their outstanding work involved with natural resources management on Tribal lands. The “Chief Sealth” award shall honor one person who has made a significant and positive impact on natural resources on Tribal lands.
