2021-2027 Public Land Strategy

Land exchanges and disposals

In addition to the comprehensive effort of the State Land Review, the DNR routinely reviews and enters into a variety of land transactions with private landowners and other nongovernmental agencies in an effort to improve efficiencies in management, ensure access to public lands, and focus ownership in priority areas. Among the most common land transactions the DNR considers are land exchanges and disposals, both of which are thoroughly vetted at multiple levels and from a variety of perspectives. The multidisciplinary review of each land transaction culminates in a recommendation from the internal Land Exchange Review Committee to the DNR director, who makes a final decision (see Appendix J).
