About the DoD Natural Resources Program

The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Natural Resources Program (NR Program) supports the military’s testing and training mission by protecting its biological resources. The NR Program provides policy, guidance, and oversight for management of natural resources on nearly 27 million acres of military land, air, and water resources owned or operated by DoD. The NR Program’s goal is to support the military’s combat readiness mission by ensuring continued access to realistic habitat conditions, while simultaneously working to ensure the long-term sustainability of our nation’s priceless natural heritage.
