DNR says donations to wildlife tax checkoff fall
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Department of Natural Resources is urging Minnesotans to help nongame wildlife by donating to the Wildlife Checkoff Fund on their state tax forms.
Nongame Wildlife Program supervisor Carrol Henderson says the tough economy has affected their budget. Donations are down more than 10 percent. Every year, she says, the number of donors decreases, with fewer than one in 35 households remembering wildlife at tax time.
