Air education & outreach

Public involvement is essential to the DNR's mission to protect the environment and human health through our programs and regulations. The Air Management Program has several resources to help members of the public stay informed about air quality issues and learn about opportunities to provide feedback on proposed rule changes and other efforts to improve and preserve air quality.

On this page you will find links to publications and Web resources about air quality and air pollution (including resources for teachers and kids); information on what citizens can do to improve air quality; and details on how to stay informed and involved through email lists, public hearings and advisory committees.
