The Confederated Tribes Of The Colville Reservation

The Integrated Resource Management Plan (IRMP)

The IRMP is the Tribes’ plan for the management of natural resources on the Reservation. It provides goals and objectives that guide multiple uses of the Reservation forest, rangeland and water resources. These include tribal enterprises that generate revenue for the Tribes, habitat for fish and wildlife, and traditional cultural activities.

As part of the IRMP update, the Tribes' natural resource managers have compiled a Resource Assessment of the natural resources of the Colville Reservation. This document describes the current conditions of the Reservation resources and identifies management issues and concerns. The Executive Summary can be viewed with the following link:

CTCR Resource Assessment Executive Summary

The Tribes are currently working to update the IRMP to provide goals and objectives for the next 15 years. As part of this planning process, the Tribes conducted a Community Survey of tribal members, non-member residents of the Reservation and employees of the Tribes and the BIA Agency.

The survey results play an important role in developing goals and objectives for the management of the natural resources of the Colville reservation. The results reveal the ways that community members use natural resources such as firewood and plant gathering, hunting and fishing and recreational activities along the lakes, streams and rivers of the Reservation. The results also reveal community perceptions of the Tribes’ management of forest and range resources and the benefits that accrue to the Tribes as a whole and the larger community as well as the flora and fauna of the Reservation.
