The Department has many policies, guidelines, programs, and activities that support its natural resource mission. Included are primary funding programs used to support the Department's wide variety of management activities, including habitat restoration, prescribed fire management, corrective and ongoing maintenance, and monitoring. In addition, information on many of the major subject areas of resource management planning and action is provided, such as geographic information systems (GIS), exotic species control, marine areas, and watershed management.
