DNR seeks input on plans for State Game Areas in southeastern Michigan

State game area managers with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources are seeking public input on several draft master plans for state game and wildlife areas located in the southeastern region of the state.

According to Tim Payne, supervisor for the DNR Wildlife Division's Southeast Region, these master plans are important in guiding habitat management, based on both the featured species selected for management at each state game and wildlife area and use of the areas for recreation such as hunting and wildlife viewing.

"In crafting these master plans, we also take into consideration how management of the state game and wildlife areas affect local economies through activities like timber sales, agricultural production and wildlife-based tourism," said Payne.

Draft master plans are available online via the links below: 

These plans will be available for review through July 11. After July 11, authors will review comments and make updates, if necessary. The final master plans will be made available on the DNR website by Sept. 1.
