2021-2027 Public Land Strategy

State land review

The DNR also conducts a periodic comprehensive statewide review of DNR-managed public lands. The last such review occurred between 2004 and 2008. To comply with and implement the 2013 Managed Public Land Strategy, another State Land Review began in September 2020. This effort involves the comprehensive multidivisional, multilevel review of approximately 240,000 acres of DNR-managed public lands. The review will be conducted on a county-by-county basis in groups of 10 counties. Recommendations for the land under review will receive a thorough public and stakeholder review prior to the DNR director making a final decision on the classification of the parcels. This thorough review will occur over the next few years (see Appendix I).
