Zero Waste Community Days 2016 - get 14 free tickets for prizes if you do your part!

DNR is supporting the efforts of Alivia Moore and the Green Team and wants to spread the word.  They have a goal of minimizing the amount of waste that is created during Community Days and ends up in local landfills.

At this year's event, anyone who brings their own dishes to the Community Meal on Saturday (even if it is a reusable water bottle!), will be given 14 free tickets for the Camping Gift Package and entered into the exclusive Green Team drawings. 

Also, look for the clearly-marked garbage containers to separate different types of waste!  There will be friendly volunteers to help you choose the right one.

If you have hunted in the past 2 years, a NEW plastic lifetime hunting license has been printed off for you!  They are ready to be picked up in the Administrative office at DNR. 

If you’re not sure if you have one, or need to request a license please call 817-7331 and give your information to Cookie or Erlinda. We are trying to avoid a flood of hunters coming in right before the fall season so plan ahead and request a license now! Thank you!

* New hunters must show proof of taking a Hunter Safety Course before receiving a license.
