Department Overview

The goal of the Wildlife Program is to assist in the perpetuation of game resources within both the Point Elliott and Medicine Creek treaty reserved areas, and within traditional hunting areas for current and future generations of Muckleshoot Tribal members. The Muckleshoot Wildlife Members and Wildlife Program staff accomplish this goal by conducting research on local game populations and working with local landowners to develop suitable habitat for these populations.

The Wildlife Enforcement Departments mission is to provide assistance to all hunters, their families and guests/permit holders while they spend time on the Tomanamus/White River property. The department also teaches Hunter’s Ed/Hunters Safety; patrols the landscape, monitors collared animals and works closely with the surrounding Cities, County and State WDFW Enforcement Departments.

In 2022, each member of the Wildlife Enforcement and Monitor team, was trained in mountain first aid. This highly technical training was held in the surround mountains of Bellingham, WA. There, each member was trained to find and administer first aid in a mountain setting.
