DNR will have booths at the Northwest Sportshow in Minneapolis

Outdoor enthusiasts can learn about aquatic plants, fishing, hunting, hiking trails, water safety and much more by visiting the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) booths at the 78th Annual Northwest Sportshow, March 24-28, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

DNR specialists will be available to answer questions at the main DNR booth located in Lobby D. The DNR License Center will be selling state parks stickers, and fishing and hunting licenses.

The DNR Enforcement Division will offer an interactive LaserShot shooting range for youth and adults. The family favorite gives participants a chance to test their skills at one of four shooting simulation stations.

Attendees can also visit the DNR’s invasive species information booth in Lobby C to pick up educational materials and talk with invasive species staff.

Daily admission is $10 for adults 16 and older, and $5 for youth 13-15 years old. Children 12 and younger are admitted for free.
