Among agenda items selected by council members, the group is scheduled to receive an update on recent nuisance regulation changes made at the May Michigan Natural Resource Commission meeting.

In addition, presentations by the western district of the DNR Forest Resources Division on the Upper Peninsula trails system and search and rescue operations for the DNR Parks and Recreation Division will be provided.   

Additional business includes reports from various division staff and committee reports, including a proposed resolution regarding a moose hunt.

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.
