Department of Natural Resources
As we celebrate 100 years of caring for Michigan’s outdoors and history, businesses and organizations are invited to get involved as sponsors and partners in conserving natural and cultural resources, while connecting with the millions of people who enjoy these resources.
With only 15% of the DNR’s annual budget coming from general tax dollars and other sources, new and creative revenue sources are key.
Businesses and organizations interested in these or other opportunities can contact Kristin Phillips via email or at 517-284-6065 to discuss.
