Michigan DNR to Hold Public Input Session on State Land Use

Anyone who spends time hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, birding, or otherwise enjoying the outdoors on public lands in 11 of Michigan’s northern counties, including Bay, Gladwin, and Midland is invited to participate in virtual meetings next month to talk about what will happen to more than 30,000 acres of land.

The DNR’s Office of Public Lands has been making a review of the acreage and is looking for public input about whether to keep the property, sell it, trade or consolidate ownership of the land. Scott Whitcom is director of teh DNR’s Office of Public Lands and says public input is important in the process of not only maintaining the land but managing potential future use.
