Connecticut is a state rich with natural resources and a great diversity of habitat, landscapes, plant life, and wildlife.  From the coastline of Long Island Sound, to the Litchfield Hills, the Connecticut River Valley and the Eastern Highlands, DEEP works to protect and preserve the natural resources and scenic beauty that make Connecticut a special place to live, work, or visit.

{BNR 150th Anniversary Logo} The DEEP Bureau of Natural Resources celebrated 150 Years of Natural Resource Conservation in Connecticut in 2016.  We looked back at our history and also forward to the future of natural resources in our state. Check out our historical timeline Connecticut Bureau of Natural Resources Through the Years and see what it was like "Then and Now."
