The Michigan Department of Natural Resources' Western Upper Peninsula Citizens' Advisory Council will meet virtually in a web conference from 6 to 8:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, July 22. 

This council session is being held virtually in line with coronavirus safety precautions.

Among its agenda items, the council is scheduled to receive updates on the summer youth program for the DNR Parks and Recreation Division, the antlerless deer hunting application process and subcommittee activity, and undertake a review of potential council bylaw revisions.   

The public may participate in the session via the virtual format. For meeting attendance and public comment instructions or additional details please, contact Kristi Dahlstrom at dahlstromk@michigan.gov or 906-226-1331 by 3 p.m. EDT Wednesday, July 21. 

The DNR's eastern and western Upper Peninsula citizens' advisory councils are designed to provide local input to advise the DNR on regional programs and policies, identify areas in which the department can be more effective and responsive and offer insight and guidance from members' own experiences and constituencies.

The council members represent a wide variety of natural resource and recreation interests. Agenda items are set by the council members and council recommendations are forwarded to the DNR for consideration.
