— The state Department of Natural Resources is planning
to waive fishing, hiking and all-terrain vehicle fees for
the first weekend in June.
plans to allow people to fish, hike or bike state trails
and ride public ATV trails for free on June 1 and June 2.
No anglers will need a license and all trail passes for
DNR-owned state trails will be waived. ATV operators won't
have to pay to register their vehicles to ride on state
trails or pay for trail passes.

forests for free on June 2.

try new outdoor activities or return to an activity they
haven't participated in for some time.
