That's a big job! Minnesota has 75 state parks, 1300 miles of trails, 3000 public water access facilities, 5 million acres of state forest, (you get the idea).
DNR people enforce laws, manage fisheries, monitor wildlife, fight forest fires, etc, etc. Clearly this is an agency that needs specialized air support....
