DNR Eastern UP Citizens' Advisory Council to meet this month in virtual session

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Eastern Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council will meet virtually in a web conference from 6 to 8:30 p.m. EST Wednesday, Dec. 20.   

Among the meeting agenda items, the group is scheduled to receive an overview of the commercial forest program and how it benefits the Upper Peninsula. Presentations of the DNR Parks and Recreation Division’s highlights and accomplishments over the past year and an overview of the eastern U.P. trails system will also be provided.     

Additional business includes updates on old business items and reports from various division staffers and council subcommittees.

We prefer people “register” for virtual attendance at CACs since they are structured meetings. For virtual meeting and 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.
