The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) urges Fourth of July Holiday week campers to help prevent the spread of invasive forest pests such as the emerald ash borer (EAB).


"Please take a few simple steps to stop invasive species in your tracks," said Susan Burks, DNR Forestry invasive species program coordinator.

Come clean to a campsite by taking a little time to inspect and remove dirt, plants and bugs from clothing, boots, gear, pets and vehicles.
