MN DNR seeking inspector a plica nts The Minnesota Department of Nat- ural Resources (DNR) is seeking wa- tercraft 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. Positions are available in Brainerd, Winona, Twin Cities, St. Cloud, Inter- national Falls, Duluth, Bemidji, Min- netonka and the surrounding areas. "We're looking for enthusiastic young adults interested in doing im- portant environmental conservation work," said Heidi Wolf, DNR water- craft inspection program coordinator. Watercraft inspectors inform and educate the public about aquatic inva- sive species and the threat they pose to Minnesota waters. Other duties may include assisting with access posting, conducting inva- sive 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. Applicants must have a valid Min- nesota driver's license, be enrolled in a natural resources or related program and eligible to receive school credit for the position. The application deadline is March 11. Contact Heidi Wolf at 651-259- 5152 or with questions.
