DNR's Western and Eastern UP Citizens' Advisory Councils to meet jointly this month in Marquette County

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Western and Eastern Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Councils will conduct a joint meeting at the Presque Isle Pavilion in Marquette, next Wednesday evening.

The pavilion is located at 3 Peter White Drive, and the meeting will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Oct. 12. 

Among agenda items selected by council members, the group is scheduled to receive updates on road and trail easements to public and private lands, potential trail closures across the U.P., mandatory deer harvest reporting, the DNR mobile app, and U.P. shooting range developments.

A special recognition will be made to Lyme Great Lakes Timberland for their efforts in securing permanent year-round trail easements throughout the U.P.

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.
