FIREWOOD CUTTING PROGRAM!

Swinomish Public Works has the new Firewood Cutting Program up and running. The program entails the purchase of firewood from enrolled Swinomish for use by others in the community. The program is intended to help tribal member woodcutters acquire income while providing a source of home heat for those who need it.

If you are interested in becoming a woodcutter, you MUST read and sign the Firewood Cutting Program & Policy form AND contact Public Works before you start.
