Purpose of the task force
The Minnesota Outdoor Recreation Task Force will bring together a diverse set of outdoor recreation stakeholders and interests in Minnesota. Together, members of the task force will consider how to bring measured growth, increased and equitable access, and a higher quality of outdoor recreation opportunities to Minnesotans and visitors.
The Minnesota Outdoor Recreation Task Force will consist of 20 members selected by Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Explore Minnesota. Members of the task force will represent a broad and inclusive group of interests related to the outdoor recreation sector in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Outdoor Recreation Task Force will develop a set of recommendations for the DNR and Explore Minnesota, which will also be shared with the Governor’s office, regarding how to more effectively coordinate and advance outdoor recreation work statewide. Recommendations will be based on task force discussions and broader public engagement.
