Work for the DNR This Summer

Hey there nature lovers! Do you enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and want to get paid for it? Look no further! The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is now accepting applications for seasonal staff at state parks, forests, trails, and recreation areas.

We talk to Brian Hefty, DNR Deputy Bureau Director, Parks & Recreation Mgmt about your chance to work in some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country, from the lush forests up north to the beautiful shores of the Great Lakes. As a seasonal employee, you’ll be responsible for outdoor maintenance, groundskeeping work, and customer service for property visitors. And let’s not forget the added perk of being able to enjoy all the recreational activities the parks have to offer, from camping and hiking to fishing and swimming.

These limited-term seasonal positions are perfect for anyone looking to gain valuable experience in natural resources or simply spend their summer outdoors. The DNR hires about 400 seasonal employees every year, so you’ll be joining a team of passionate individuals dedicated to maintaining and preserving Wisconsin’s natural resources.

The opportunities for personal and professional growth are endless, and the memories you’ll create will last a lifetime. Don’t miss out on this chance to work and play in some of the most beautiful places in the state. Visit Wisc. Jobs and search for “Parks” to apply, or contact a specific park property directly for more information.

What’s the Best Breed of Dog?

Luke Mathers from Dueling Tangents with Luke and Bryan joins for the last half hour of the show to debate what the best breed of dog is since, last year, for the first time in 31 years, the labrador retriever was not America’s most popular dog, according to the American Kennel Club.

What breed scooted in on stubby legs with an adorable smushed-in face to take the top dog spot? The French Bulldog. About one out of every seven dogs registered with the AKC last year was a Frenchie, reflecting a rapid rise in the popularity of the breed—which, though guaranteed to pull in likes on social media, can also suffer from serious health problems.
