Centennial Celebration for SCDNR

Collection of historic and timeline photos for SCDNR

This historical timeline is a chronological listing of the milestones for what has become the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. 2005 marked the 100th anniversary of game and fish law enforcement by the state of South Carolina. The passage of Act 489 in 1905 provided for the appointment of game wardens by the governor, and in 1906 Act 60 created the State Board of Fisheries, beginning a century of progress in the professional management, protection and improvement of our state's natural resources. These pieces of legislation also began an evolution that led to the creation of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. DNR invites its constituents, sportsmen and friends to join in the commemoration of the advances made by our agency and the contributions of our current employees and those who preceded us.
