Volunteers and DNR: An enduring partnership
Volunteers play a key role in keeping DNR recreation areas open and safe for the public. They help maintain trails and facilities, pick up litter, participate in work parties, provide visitor information, report suspicious activity and serve as camp hosts. The thousands of hours volunteers donate each year helps DNR to secure grants for future enhancements. In return, repeat volunteers can earn a complimentary Discover Pass. For more information, visit the DNR volunteer Web page.
