Nominate volunteers for natural resources honor

September 25, 2012

By Staff

The state Department of Natural Resources is searching statewide to recognize a top volunteer.

The agency is accepting nominations for the inaugural Commissioner of Public Lands’ Volunteer Hero Award. The recipient might be a dedicated blackberry buster on public lands, or a dedicated participant in efforts to build trails in state forests.

Organizers said ideal candidates should have demonstrated leadership and commitment in sustained service to the agency’s volunteer program. The period to submit a nomination is open until Sept. 28. Find the form and more information at

The agency relies on thousands of volunteers so visitors can enjoy safe, sustainable and high-quality outdoor recreation experiences on Department of Natural Resources-managed lands.
