DNR seeks watercraft inspector applicants
The Minnesota DNR is seeking watercraft inspector interns for
the upcoming boating season. Inspectors are stationed at public
accesses on lakes and rivers infested with invasive species such as
Eurasian watermilfoil and zebra mussels.
“We’re looking for enthusiastic young adults interested in doing
important environmental conservation work,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR
watercraft inspection program coordinator. Watercraft inspectors
inform and educate the public about aquatic invasive species and
the threat they pose to Minnesota waters.
Other duties may include assisting with access posting,
conducting invasive species plant removal and other natural
resource projects. These are full-time temporary internships that
start in late April and run through the middle of October, with
flexibility for students still in school.
Positions are still available in: Cook and Itasca counties,
Ottertail and Douglas counties, Brainerd, Bemidji, Rainy Lake, Lake
of the Woods and Spicer/Willmar areas.
Applicants must have a valid Minnesota driver’s license, be
enrolled in a natural resources or related program and eligible to
receive school credit for the position. Application deadline is
