Michigan's Managed Public Land Strategy

Why the Strategy was created:

Public Act 240 of 2012 required the creation of a strategic plan for public land management. The resulting plan is Michigan's Managed Public Land Strategy, created in collaboration with a broad range of partners. The Strategy provides a framework for the continued conservation, use and management of public lands to provide an enhanced quality of life for residents and visitors and ensure the best use of public land.
