The Big Horn Range was involved in the Tribal Forest project

On Friday, the Biden-Harris office announced that more than $12 million from President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure bill will be invested in fiscal 2023 to complete projects in support of the Tribal Forest Protection Act (TFPA). Projects were selected to support a number of activities aimed at restoring forests and grasslands. The work will include vegetation management, hazardous fuel risk reduction, and cultural and ethnobotanical surveys of the native landscape.

  • The project in Wyoming: The Bighorn National Forest and Northern Arapaho, Northern Cheyenne, Crow, Oglala Lakota and Shoshone Tribes will work on the resilience and restoration of traditionally significant plants affected by climate change and site disturbance by incorporating indigenous knowledge into ecological restoration activities. .
