public’s interest in mind, which means transparency and public knowledge. Our decisions are guided by sound science as
we manage state trust lands, native ecosystems and natural resources. We
support the vision of a sustainable future by protecting and managing the
natural resources so future generations will have them.
DNR manages over 5 million acres of state-owned
land that includes forest, range, commercial, agricultural and aquatic lands.
We generate revenue that supports public schools, state institutions and county
services. But managing lands is only half of our story. We also protect other
public resources such as fish, wildlife, water, and provide public access to
outdoor recreation. Two of our largest and most important state-wide resource
protection responsibilities are fire prevention and suppression, and overseeing
The DNR has an annual operating budget of
approximately $187 million and has over 1200 permanent employees with
approximately 300 additional staff hired during the summer fire season.
We have some of the most talented people in the
industry. We honor diversity in the workplace
and support one another with respect and trust.
We invite you to learn more about our culture, our careers, and why some
of the top forestry and natural science professionals have joined Washington
DNR by visiting our DNR website.
