Archaeological exploration on state-owned lands
All archaeological exploration to be performed on state-owned lands, except for lands owned and controlled by the Mackinac Island State Parks Commission, is required to have a use permit. Please complete form PR-6412 (Application for permit to perform archaeological exploration on state-owned land).
Applications to perform archaeological explorations on state-owned lands will be considered and may be approved if a proposed exploration is consistent with other public interest, natural resource values, and historical values.
