Mission Statement

To conserve, protect, enhance, and advocate the wise use of the Commonwealth's unique natural, historic, recreational, scenic and cultural resources.

Description

Conservation, Wise Use Ultimately our livelihood, quality of life and future depend on how intelligently all of us manage our natural resources. With this in mind, the department enhances natural and recreational resources through land management planning, funding, education and regulation. Nearly everyone in Virginia is touched by a DCR activity. Conservation. It just means wise use. Conserving our resources, protecting them for the future . . . it's not simple work. And we don't handle it alone. We work with many local, volunteer and citizen groups. Whether it's with one of the state's 46 soil and water conservation districts, the Nature Conservancy, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, or a local parks and recreation department, the focus is always on conserving our natural and recreational resources.
