DNR's Western UP Citizens' Advisory Council to meet this month in Baraga County

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Western Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council will meet at Baraga Lakeside Inn conference room, 900 South U.S. 41, in Baraga from 6 to 8:30 p.m. EDT Monday, July 10. 

Among agenda items selected by council members, the group is scheduled to receive a presentation on the Michigan DNR’s parks and recreation division, updates on Douglass Houghton Falls and the proposed Michigamme highlands forest legacy project, and a trail report for the western Upper Peninsula, including Lake Linden. Additional business includes a review of a recent moose survey and deer regulations approved by the Natural Resources Commission in June. 

For public comment instructions or additional details please, contact Kristi Dahlstrom at or 906-226-1331.

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.
