Managing your resources

Michigan's natural resources are carefully managed, so they are here to enjoy for you and future generations. Public land and minerals are managed to generate revenue for parks and waterways. Forests are strategically managed to create fish and wildlife habitat. Wildlife and fish are carefully managed to strike a balance between recreation and conservation.

Learn how we manage Michigan's resources, and how we can help you successfully manage your own resources.



We put together a list of resources you may find helpful if you are a landowner or homeowner. Find information on burn permits, backyard wildlife, fuelwood permits, invasive species, assistance programs and more.
