  Volunteer Network   

Link to Volunteer NetworkThousands of volunteers are used at all the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Park sites every year and are a major asset in maintaining the parks natural and recreational resources. Without the volunteers we would not be able to maintain the parks and manage them as well as we do.


Public review and comment was requested on the new 2009-2014 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). SCORP assesses the supply of and demand for outdoor recreation in the state, identifies outdoor recreation needs and establishes priorities for Department of Natural Resources grant programs.
