State Parks is now in the new Department of Natural and Cultural Resources! Please see the email below from our new Secretary Susan Kluttz on September 18.


Welcome to the new N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources! With this name change, four divisions - the N.C. Zoological Park, the N.C. Aquariums, N.C. the N.C. State Parks, the N.C. Museums of Natural Sciences, along with the Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Natural Heritage Program - create the Nature component to join with Arts, History and Library into one great agency. Together, we will continue to promote all of the state-owned treasures that make North Carolina such an amazing place. We truly value all of these rich assets and their contribution to our State's quality of life, and we are committed to making sure they are protected and supported. I am thrilled that you will be joining our team. We look forward to incorporating your efforts toward conservation of N.C.'s natural heritage to our current focus on preserving, protecting and promoting the state's cultural resources. In addition, it's clear we already share an incredible mission in education. Most importantly, you will be joining a team of professional, passionate and innovative people - just like you - who are looking forward to learning from you and growing with you. I am confident that, together, we will become even stronger as we collaborate on our joint vision to being leaders in using the state's natural and cultural resources to build the social, cultural, educational and economic future of North Carolina. We are excited to be working with you. I recognize that with such a change, you may have questions. Many of your divisions' leaders have been working with us for the past few months to prepare for this transition. Please check our list of Frequently Asked Questions at http://portal.ncdenr.org/group/denr <http://portal.ncdenr.org/group/denr> or send your specific questions to transferinfo@ncdcr.gov <mailto:transferinfo@ncdcr.gov> and we will try to get an answer to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience as we work through other details together. It is our goal to minimize any disruptions for you and of the effective services you provide while we simultaneously try to effectively build our expanded department. I am also available to you, so please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. 

With warm regards, Susan Susan W. Kluttz, Secretary
