The Division of Wildlife studies and manages fish and wildlife populations and enforces hunting and fishing laws.
Welcome to the temporary website of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. We are developing a new, dynamic, and user-friendly website that won’t be ready until late summer.
The Division’s temporary website has some of our most popular features available, but not everything that used to be available online. We are working to keep you informed, provide basic information and forms, and offer ways to contact us for more information. Please keep checking our site for news, updates, information, and access to online applications/forms as they become available. Thank you for your patience.
Learn from Wildlife specialists, Naturalists, and others at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources about Ohio's great outdoors. Check out ODNR's YouTube Field Notes playlist to learn more about the flora, fauna, and natural features around Ohio.
