About Us

The DNCR was established by an act of the Legislature on July 1, 2017. Our five divisions are dedicated to protecting, promoting and managing a wide variety of New Hampshire’s natural, recreational and cultural resources. Together, these resources help define our state and are major drivers of our economy and high quality of life.

We are so proud to be "What You Love about New Hampshire!"
