As is the case in many state agencies, the Governor, the Department of Natural Resources, and state government as a whole benefit from the expertise of private citizens and public servants through a series of statutory boards and commissions authorized by the Governor or General Assembly. At the discretion of the Secretary, additional ad hoc committees may be appointed to participate in policy discussions.
These special boards are assigned specific responsibilities or areas of inquiry, and are sometimes mandated to complete their work by a prescribed date. In assisting the Governor and departmental leadership, they may receive staffing or other administrative support from the department.
The following is an alphabetized list of department’s currently authorized boards and commissions that include public members, and information on membership and areas of responsibility. Click on the board that interests you to obtain more details.
