State parks and trails planning


Outdoor recreation fee increases

"I want to thank the many Minnesotans and state lawmakers who supported modest increases in parks, snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, hunting and fishing fees during the recent legislative session. These fees will help maintain quality outdoor experiences for now and for future generations. We are fortunate to live in a state that offers such great outdoor opportunities and passionate citizenry that supports those resources." -DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr
