DNR to observe National Volunteer WeekApril 13, 2020
From Local Sources
INDIANAPOLIS — More than 14,000 volunteers across the state contributed in excess of 132,000 hours on Indiana Department of Natural Resources properties in 2019.
During National Volunteer Week, April 19-25, the DNR will thank those volunteers and salute their accomplishments on the dnr.IN.gov website.
Jody Heaston, the DNR’s state parks volunteer coordinator, says volunteers make a difference by helping to maintain, improve and restore Indiana’s natural and cultural heritage at DNR properties. She says guests can see the impacts of volunteers through miles of trail improvements, acres of invasive plants removed, help provided at events, program supplies organized, structures painted and more.
Anyone interested in helping at DNR properties is urged to explore on.IN.gov/dnrvolunteer. Heaston says interested people can become part of DNR’s volunteer family by downloading a volunteer application and contacting their local DNR property to learn more.
Posts recognizing volunteers will also be found on the Facebook pages of the DNR divisions of State Parks, Fish & Wildlife, Forestry and Nature Preserves.
