This award not only recognizes an outstanding volunteer who has shown tireless commitment, but it also celebrates all of DNR’s valuable volunteers.

Honoring volunteers across Washington State
Volunteers play a key role in the success of many DNR programs, including the Recreation and Natural Areas program. DNR is fortunate to have thousands of dedicated volunteers whose energy, enthusiasm, hard work, and time make it possible for visitors to enjoy safe, sustainable, and high-quality outdoor recreation experiences on DNR-managed lands.

DNR is currently accepting nominations for the Commissioner’s Volunteer Hero Award. Ideal candidates will have demonstrated leadership and commitment in their sustained service to the DNR Volunteer Program.
