Mission: To protect human health, the environment, and our natural resources. 

Vision: Develop the framework necessary to achieve an overall redevelopment strategy that will ensure the Tribe's environment and natural resources are protected for current and future use. 

Services: Currently, the DENR consists of four programs: General Assistance Program (GAP), 106 Water Quality Program, Brownfields Tribal Response Program (TRP), and Pesticide Circut Rider Program.
