Department of the Interior

The U.S. Department of the Interior protects America's natural resources and heritage, honors our cultures and tribal communities, and supplies the energy to power our future.

The 70,000 employees and more than 280,000 volunteers that work for DOI carry out Interior's mission from more than 2,400 operating locations. Serving communities large and small, they deliver land- and community-based programs in ways that engage the participation of citizens, groups and businesses.

Managing by Network was piloted with BLM employees in 2008; DOI's Office of Collaborative Action and Dispute Resolution (CADR) has co-hosted the course since 2013. Participants from DOI hail from the BLM, BOR, NPS, USFWS, USGS and DOI CADR.
