Plus, learn more about opportunity to fill two vacant seats on the Michigan State Parks Advisory Committee

The Department of Natural Resources is committed to providing Michigan residents 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 and cultural resource management. Frequently check the DNR boards, commissions, committees and councils webpage for updates.

The links below will take you to the webpage for each group, where you will find meeting details such as location and agenda (when finalized). Please check these pages often, as meeting details may change and sometimes meetings are canceled.

Applicants should have experience using the state parks and recreation system and involvement in outdoor recreation and natural resources or related affiliations. Members will assist the committee in advising and making recommendations to the DNR on state parks policy, provide guidance on state park matters, seek development of a broad variety of programs and more.
