OUR VISION
Our decisions and hard work on the ground leave a legacy of healthy forests, clean water, thriving ecosystems, and a vibrant natural resource-based economy.

OUR MISSION
In partnership with citizens and governments, the Washington State DNR provides innovative leadership and expertise to ensure environmental protection, public safety, perpetual funding for schools and communities, and a rich quality of life.

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Manage the state’s resources sustainably.
Through our sustainable management of resources entrusted to our care, future generations will have ample opportunities to enjoy and benefit from Washington’s rich natural heritage. We will also ensure that revenues for our trusts will be stable or growing and that associated industries will thrive for generations to come.

Make decisions based on sound science.
Using sound science, data, and information to guide our decisions will result in the best possible outcomes for the State of Washington.

Make decisions in the public interest and with the public’s knowledge.
Transparency and accountability are vital to earn the public’s trust and appropriately manage shared resources. Decisions should be made for the benefit of current and future generations.
