ITBC believes that the best way to advance and support a Tribal bison program is to be present and on the ground for our Tribes. Technical Services staff conduct site visits for each Tribe on a routine and emergency basis. Each routine visit is to monitor range and animal condition, check on Herd Development Grant expenditures and projects, and help with long term project planning and goal setting. These goal setting and planning sessions are designated to empower member Tribes to advance their programs through updating their 5-Year Management Plans during these visits. ITBC can also provide assistance and emergency consultation for things such as round ups, environmental disasters, and new member planning on a case by case basis.
