Persons can honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by volunteering at one of Indiana’s Dept. of Natural Resources’ properties this year.

The DNR provides a variety of ways to make a difference in maintaining, improving and restoring Indiana’s natural and cultural heritage.

Several opportunities are available, including maintaining trails, helping in nature centers and sharing photography or artwork. The DNR also welcomes those who can use their unique talents to create their own volunteer opportunity.

“Volunteering gives you a great sense of accomplishment,” said Jody Heaston, volunteer coordinator for Indiana’s state parks. “You know you are helping manage and conserve our natural and cultural resources for future generations to enjoy.”

On Monday, MLK Day, some properties will have self-directed service opportunities, such as picking up litter along trails.
