In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is doing its part through social distancing in the workplace. As of April 1, most of DNR's employees will work from home and its main office buildings will be closed to the public. However, the DNR and its agencies will remain open for business through phone or email to serve the people of Colorado. Please be patient and flexible during this unprecedented circumstance, and know that we will respond to customers as soon as possible. Click here for COVID-19 updates.
