The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) provides outdoor recreation activities and manages Minnesota’s natural resources to create economic opportunity and a sustainable quality of life. We are driven to find talented, innovative employees to help us carry out this mission.

The DNR is currently seeking to fill a full-time Laborer Trades & Equipment position located in Montevideo, MN. The nature of the work may require a high degree of flexibility in hours and days worked on a seasonal basis. Extensive day and occasional overnight may be required. During the prescribed burn season, crew members will be conducting burns on a weather dependent basis, which means possible weekends and extended/long hours.

This position exists as an integral part of the DNR Wildlife’s Roving Wildlife Habitat Crew to provide the specialized equipment operation and labor skills necessary to assist with construction, restoration, and enhancement projects on public lands. This position specializes in natural resource habitat management on prairie, wetland, and forest habitat.  Activities include but are not limited to prescribed burning; fire break construction; prairie restoration, enhancement, and management; wetland development and construction, enhancement, and management; woody vegetation removal; forest stand management; conservation grazing infrastructure construction; and the operation and maintenance of specialized equipment used to accomplish these activities.

This is a great opportunity to carry out habitat enhancement and development projects on wildlife management area, aquatic management areas, scientific natural areas, state forest, waterfowl production areas, national wildlife refuges, and other natural resource lands open to public use.
