Volunteering with the DNR – Survey

An update from Arielle Courtney, DNR

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed a safe, healthy celebration of the winter holidays and got the opportunity to spend a bit extra time at our state parks and trails. As I write this, I’m planning to visit some of our beautiful north shore parks around the new year with my family and hopefully get my 21-month-old daughter a few more stamps in her passport club booklet!

I know we are all hopeful to see more normalcy in 2022, although it’s hard to predict exactly when that will occur given recent news. In the meantime, as we await the new normal, I wanted to hear from some of our most active volunteers—friends groups (you!)—about your experience volunteering with us.

Please take a moment to answer a few questions that will help us improve volunteering in state parks and trails. Responses will be collected through January 21.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 651-259-5609 or Arielle.courtney@state.mn.us.

Thanks and be well,

Arielle Courtney
