From Yreka to Calexico and from Truckee to San Francisco, the work of the Natural Resources Agency touches every pocket of our state. Our mission of restoring, protecting, and managing the state's natural, historical and cultural resources is only possible with your help – the business owners, community organizers, land stewards, environmentalists, students, tribal leaders, scientists, nature enthusiasts, and so many more who help preserve our state’s pristine biodiversity and habitat. The diversity of species and people in our state is one of our greatest assets.
We invite you to stay up to date by checking out our news releases, calendar events, newsletters, Secretary’s blog, and more. We also want to take every opportunity to elevate the voices of California residents in protecting our natural resources. To do so, please check out our various resources to engage with you and your organization.
