The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation is the state’s lead conservation agency. As such, the agency handles many diverse programs and services, and it takes an equally diverse staff to deliver them. DCR protects what people care about- access to outdoors, natural habitats, open spaces, clean water and safe infrastructure. Virginia’s 41 state parks have beaches, festivals, thousands of campsites, hundreds of cabins, many miles of trails, plenty of educational programs and much more. If you want to love your job and make a difference, DCR is for you.
