DNR Staff
Horizontal Line

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is a separate agency from the Riverway Board.  While the board is responsible for aesthetic protection in the riverway, the DNR maintains its traditional areas of responsibility including resource management, land acquisition, and enforcement.  The DNR routinely provides technical assistance to the board.  The cooperative working relationship established between the board and the DNR since inception of the project has been a key to the success of the riverway initiative.  Listed below are DNR staff with riverway responsibilities.
