GLIFWC's Environmental Section


     GLIFWC's Environmental Section is part of the Biological Services Division and is tasked with supporting tribal exercise of treaty rights through a wide number of interdiciplinary projects. The environmental section does not focus on any particular resource or habitat (e.g. wild rice or inland lakes) but works with all of GLIFWC sections and staff to investigate threats to resources from many different sources. As part of this interdisciplinary approach, the environmental section works out of two locations: the main GLIFWC office in Odanah, where our biology staff are located, and a satellite office on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus. The satellite office allows GLIFWC to maintain contact with WDNR staff, research and academic staff at the university as well as access to a wide variety of hardware and software resources. The Madison office also hosts the GLIFWC internet mapping servers.
