Among the meeting agenda items, the group is scheduled to receive a review of the mandatory harvest registration numbers, the status of snowmobile Trail No. 2 in Gogebic County and a recap of the wolf management plan approval process outlined by the Michigan Natural Resources Commission at its November meeting.

Additional business includes an update of a newly NRC-approved fisheries order regarding the Cisco Chain of Lakes, virtual orientation suggestion for elk hunts, council member term process and subcommittee reports.

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.
