Stillaguamish Tribe Wildlife Program

The mission of the Stillaguamish Tribe Wildlife Program is the conservation of fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats within the Stillaguamish Watershed. In order to accomplish this mission, the integrity, diversity and vitality of all natural systems must be protected.


The Natural Resources Department Wildlife Program was established to ensure that both game and nongame species are maintained and perpetuated for their intrinsic and ecological values and for their ceremonial, scientific, and subsistence use by the people of the Stillaguamish Tribe. In addition, the Tribe is responsible for co-managing the resources and establishing and enforcing rules and regulations governing fishing, hunting, trapping, and acquisition of wildlife management areas. Conservation of wildlife includes:

  • Preservation/protection of all species

  • Enhancement of wildlife habitat

  • Management of wildlife problems

  • Consumptive use of wildlife

The Tribe partners with Tulalip Tribes on elk enhancement work in Game Management Unit 418. The goal is to recreate the Bear Creek elk enhancement site to provide foraging habitat for the Nooksack elk herd, and hopefully decrease elk damage in the Lyman/Hamilton area.
