DNR seeks input on southwest Michigan state game area master plans

June 19, 2017, DNR News

The Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input on several draft master plans for state game and wildlife areas in the southwest region of Michigan.

These plans are important in guiding habitat management, based on both the featured species selected for management at each area and use of the areas for recreation such as hunting and wildlife viewing.

In crafting these master plans, the DNR also takes into consideration how management of the state game and wildlife areas affects local economies through activities like timber sales, agricultural production and wildlife-based tourism.

Draft master plans are available online via the links below:

These plans will be available for review through July 15. Comments can be submitted directly to the author at the email addresses listed above and within the master plan drafts.

After July 15, authors will review comments and make updates if necessary. The final master plans will be made available on the Michigan DNR state wildlife/game area web page by Aug. 1.
