Title: Planting a Seed: Revitalizing Land and Culture

Description: The landscape-scale wetland conservation work the Oneida Nation is doing in Northeastern Wisconsin is not only restoring nature on their reservation, it’s also helping to revitalize their culture.  The healthier natural environment not only provides opportunities for their people to hunt, fish, and gather what nature has provided, it also establishes relationships that will build a stronger community today and for future generations.
