The Indiana Department of Conservation was created in 1919 with Richard Lieber, the father of Indiana's state parks system, as the first director. It had 5 divisions: Geology, Entomology, Forestry, Land and Waters, and Fish and Games. In 1965, Governor Branigan signed the Natural Resources Act into law, creating the Department of Natural Resources which combined the Department of Conservation with the Flood Control and Waters Commission, State Soil and Water Conservation Committee, and Outdoor Recreation Council.
