Volunteer Safety Resources

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is fortunate to benefit from the contributions of thousands of volunteers, whose work helps preserve and enhance Minnesota's natural resources for the enjoyment of people of all ages, interests, and abilities. Safety is a top priority at the DNR and the department has put appropriate safety training and resources in place on this page to protect volunteers, who give of their time and experience without compensation.

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines: Those who volunteer with people outside of their immediate household must follow the Volunteer Tennessen Notice and Health Screening Questions.

Please work with your DNR volunteer supervisor to determine what other listed safety trainings you may need based on your volunteer activities. And thank you for your commitment to natural resource conservation!
