Share your thoughts with the DNR at upcoming meetings

Feb. 27, 2019

The Department of Natural Resources is committed to providing Michigan citizens the opportunity to share input and ideas on policy decisions, programs and other aspects of natural resource management and outdoor recreation opportunities. One important avenue for this input is at meetings of the public bodies that advise the DNR and, in some cases, also set policies for natural resource management.

The following boards, commissions, committees and councils will hold public meetings in March. The public is encouraged to attend. The links below will take you to the webpage for each group, where you will find specific meeting locations and, when finalized, meeting agendas.

Please check these pages frequently, as meeting details and agendas may change and sometimes meetings are canceled.

In addition, the public is invited to join DNR Fisheries Division staff at Conversations & Coffee events in March for an informal opportunity to discuss local issues and management activities, and to get specific questions answered. More information, including April event dates, is available at or by contacting Elyse Walter at 517-284-5839.
