• Red Lake WRAPS - Public Meetings

    The public meetings for the Upper/Lower Red Lake WRAPS have been scheduled. These will be an open house format; there is no need to attend the entire two-hour session. Please come when it works best for you. Cookies and refreshments will be served.

    Open house format means representatives from various agencies will be in attendance at the Kelliher meeting to have one-on-one conversations to provide you with more information on the status of the biological community data, water chemistry, stream channel stability, geomorphology, and modeling status and general modeling information from the watershed.

    Red Lake DNR Water Resources staff will provide this information and opportunities for one-on-one conversation at the Ponemah and Red Lake meetings.

The Red Lake Reservation is home to 75 percent of the Tribe’s 10,000 Band members. The primary sources of livelihood include hunting, fishing, and subsistence natural resource harvesting. Natural resources historically represented the most important source of employment to the Band members, with commercial fishing and logging representing the two most important industries. These two industries affect every member on the Reservation. Therefore, preserving and restoring its rich aquatic ecosystem and abundance of other natural resources is critical to Band members’ health, welfare, traditional ways of life, economic viability, and is a high priority for the Band. 

Natural resources programs for the Reservation have been productively operating since the 1980’s. Base programs such as forestry, fisheries, wildlife, waters, and environmental protection have created a strong foundation allowing expansions in recent years to create specialized programs such as wetlands, GIS, air quality, and fire prevention to name a few.
