DNR Roundtable: Minnesotans Working Together – The Key to Conservation Success

Roundtable participants gather to discuss issues

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources works closely with individuals and organizations to achieve our mission: to conserve and manage the state's natural resources, provide outdoor recreation opportunities, and provide for commercial uses of natural resources in a way that creates a sustainable quality of life.

Every year, the DNR hosts “The Roundtable,” a gathering of stakeholders and conservation leaders to discuss fisheries, wildlife, ecological and water resource issues in Minnesota.

The 2023 Roundtable is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 20. For the first time, there has been an open registration opportunity for what has historically been an invitation-only event. All first-come, first-served slots have been filled.

The theme of the 2023 Roundtable is “Minnesotans Working Together – The Key to Conservation Success.” The keynote speaker will be Duluth Mayor Emily Larson. Featured speakers will include Commissioner Sarah Strommen and other leaders from the DNR and the conservation community.

The DNR recognizes the value of bringing people together in-person to build relationships and discuss important topics related to protecting and managing land, water, fish and wildlife, and providing access to outdoor recreation opportunities.
