Public meetings on ORV rules for southern Lower Peninsula state forest roads are set for June 4-8.
Starting June 1, you can view proposed forest road classifications and make comments at michigan.gov/forestroads.
We want you to be involved in state forest planning - also known as our compartment review process. Our plans for the forest include harvesting timber, planting trees, prescribed burning and maintaining fields and open areas – activities that help to provide wildlife habitat, control invasive species and improve the overall health of the forest. You’re invited to look over proposals, view maps of the affected areas and provide feedback.
Open houses take place from June - October. You'll have the opportunity to learn more about future forest plans and meet with staff who make recommendations. You can also provide input. If you can't make the meetings or if you require accomodations, please contact us.
Attend compartment review meetings to hear DNR professionals make final decisions for the future of the forest. If you can't make the meetings or if you require accomodations, please contact us.
The state forest road inventory and classification for roads in the Upper Peninsula will go into effect in January 2019.
View proposed forest road classifications and make comments at michigan.gov/forestroads.
Public input is an important part of the park general management planning process. Opportunities to provide feedback on in-progress management plans will be announced on this page when there is a public comment period or open house occurring. Drafts of park management plans can be found here.
