The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is asking residents to help them capture the glory of Michigan’s state parks.

If you’re selected, you will be an official “photo ambassador.” Sounds cool, right?

The DNR is currently taking applications for its next group of state park “photo ambassadors,” which calls on Michigan photographers to show off the beauty of Michigan’s state parks.

The DNR states applicants must have a public Instagram account and, obviously, enjoy the outdoors and Michigan state parks, trails and waterways. The gig is unpaid, but stage park swag and other freebies are part of the deal.

The deadline to apply for 2021 is Nov. 20. Think you have what it takes? Find more information here.
