Each year, volunteers of all ages put in thousands of hours helping DNR.
Their dedicated efforts and skills help us maintain and improve recreational sites, trails, natural areas, and other outdoor volunteer opportunities on the state trust lands we manage.
Some volunteers devote time every month; others pitch in a few hours here and there. Either way, we’re happy to get the help.
At DNR, we’re thankful to all of those who:
- Spent countless hours battling blackberries and scotch broom to keep these invasive plants from overtaking trails and natural areas.
- Volunteered for the Forest Watch Program.
- Provided information and nature interpretation to school children and other forest visitors.
- Trekked out in the field to collect data or monitor plant species — providing valuable information to staff scientists.
- Helped us maintain and build recreational trails.
- Organized volunteer work parties.
- Helped DNR keep campgrounds open to the public by becoming a volunteer camp host.
- …. and the many, many other activities that rely on the efforts of volunteers.
To all of you, our sincere thanks! And a Happy Thanksgiving.
