It's a big job protecting Minnesota's 13-million acres of lakes, rivers and wetlands.
Right now, the Department of Natural Resources is holding a Conservation Officer Academy at Camp Ripley in an effort to fill vacant positions.
Almost 400 people applied and 14 cadets were chosen for the academy.
They will go through 15 weeks there, then another 16 weeks of field training.
