Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council

Established in 2001, the Wisconsin Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (WTCAC) is an Association that provides a forum for eleven (11) Native American Tribes in Wisconsin to identify and solve natural resource issues on Tribal lands. We are a Council that gives a voice to our Tribes of Wisconsin on conservation issues that are important to us at the state and national levels.

Through a strong partnership with the USDA–NRCS, the Council reviews and recommends proposals for conservation projects from Tribes of Wisconsin. Tribal Conservation Advisory Councils were first authorized in the 1995 Farm Bill as advisory bodies to NRCS and all of USDA on Tribal issues. WTCAC was the first such council formed in the country.

Vision:

Natural resources of reservations in Wisconsin will become world renowned as being ecologically sustainable while meeting the needs of our communities.

Mission:

Make federal conservation programs work on Tribal Lands through government to government education and demonstration.
