DNR: make summer camping plans now (04/25/2007)
With the summer holidays right around the corner, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says there is still time for people to make their camping and lodging reservations at Minnesota state parks.

For schedule of advance booking dates for camping, select the "90-Day Window" on the reservation Web site at www.stayatmnparks.com or contact the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157 or toll free 1-888MINNDNR (646-6367).

DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Q: As the snow melts in the spring, and during lengthy periods without rainfall, the DNR issues fire restrictions. Is there a difference between a restriction and burning ban?

A: Burning restrictions involve the issuing of burning permits. Burning permits are required for running fires, such as a grassy ditch or field, or piled vegetative debris. When restrictions are in place, permits are only issued for management or prescribed burns, or special burns such as construction companies burning trees and brush cleared from roads. Burning bans, which are issued by the DNR commissioner, prohibit other types of fires. For example, bans may disallow campfires completely or restrict them certain hours of the day. They may also restrict any fire outdoors, including smoking and barbeque grills. Bans are only imposed when extreme fire conditions have existed for a long period of time.
