Residents who spend time hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, bird watching, or other outdoor activities in Oceana or Mason counties, among other things, are invited to join virtual meetings hosted by the Michigan DNR on Wednesday, 30.30am or by Email by October 8th.
The meetings revolve around the recently completed multi-year state land review of a group of counties in the state. In addition to Mason and Oceana, Alcona, Calhoun, Emmet, Houghton, Keweenaw, Mackinac, Macomb, and St. Clair counties were also included in the review. The DNR is now determining which parcels of land best meet its goal of providing broad public access to high quality outdoor recreational opportunities while protecting the natural and cultural resources in these areas, and asks for feedback from those who enjoy nature in these counties enjoy.
Meetings are scheduled in Microsoft Teams for September 29, 6:00 p.m. and September 30, 2:30 p.m. For more information on how to access these meetings, see the DNR website.
Aside from public meetings and via the interactive map, feedback on these initial recommendations for this third group of counties can be emailed to [email protected] by October 8th.
