Commissioners' Office Hours

Connecting with Minnesotans is at the foundation of the work we do as an agency. Commissioners' Office Hours was created to provide an informal opportunity for DNR leadership to meet with Minnesotans and discuss topics of interest.

Commissioners' Office Hours is a monthly, one-hour conversation hosted either in-person or online via the WebEx platform. Everyone is invited to join and each month we choose an event or topic that is timely and relevant to our work at the DNR. The format of the conversation is informal. Our goal for the conversation is to promote meaningful dialogue among all participants.
We will continuously update this list with new dates and events. Please check back regularly for these updates.


Members of the Commissioner's Office will attend Pheasant Fest and hold an in-person office hours at the event. Check back soon for date and time.


Virtual office hours will be held on March 22nd from 3-4 p.m. Topic TBD.
