MADISON, Wis.-The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is joining with organizations nationwide to shine a spotlight on the vital contributions of entrepreneurs and small business owners during Small Business Week, May 5-11. Wisconsin's 450,000 small businesses employ half the state's private work force representing 1.2 million jobs.

"We at the Department of Natural Resources are committed to supporting our small businesses," says DNR Secretary Designee Preston Cole in a video that will air on social media. "We have dedicated staff at the ready to help you reduce your risks, improve your profits, and contribute to a cleaner Wisconsin."

DNR's business support services can help businesses every step along the way, including:

"Whether your business has been around for decades, or looking to break ground, the Department of Natural Resources is here to help you improve your environmental footprint," Cole says.
