The Department of Natural Resources has statewide responsibilities for the management and conservation of Georgia’s natural and cultural resources. Most of this work is conducted by DNR’s six operating divisions which include: Coastal Resources Division; Environmental Protection Division; Historic Preservation Division; Law Enforcement Division; Parks, Recreation & Historic Sites Division and Wildlife Resources Division. The Board of Natural Resources, which is appointed by the Governor, oversees rulemaking for the agency.

The Department of Natural Resources is responsible for the development and implementation of many planning documents that guide the management and protection of Georgia’s natural and cultural resources. Many of these plans are required to be developed by federal or state law. Some of them are directly tied to the state’s eligibility for federal funding. In accordance with the Board of Natural Resources policy on public involvement, they also have all included a high level of public input during their development.
