Q: National Volunteer Week is April 612. What sort of volunteer opportunities does the DNR have to offer?
A: Volunteer opportunities vary across the state from assisting with wildlife research to cleaning rivers to playing Smokey Bear at the State Fair, to name a few. Right now the DNR is looking for volunteers to help count loons and frogs, plant trees, bait hooks at fishing clinics, build portable field desks, and search for rare wildflowers.
