The Biological Services Department strives to enhance, protect, and restore fish, wildlife, and plant communities and water bodies. Staff participate in research and monitoring of the environment on both tribal trust lands and the surrounding region. Major programs include Great Lakes fisheries assessments, inland fish and wildlife assessments, forest management, invasive species management, beach health monitoring, water quality assessments, and some recycling programs to reduce hazardous chemical entering the environment. Biological Services also provides outreach and education to the community in both public events and printed publications.

For questions about fishing/hunting licenses or to report poaching,  please contact Bay Mills Conservation Department.

For questions about forest fires, contact the Bay Mills Wildland Firefighters program. To report a wild fire, call the 906-643-7900. If you feel the fire poses a threat to human health immediately contact 911.
