DNR Citizens’ Advisory Council to meet at Bay West

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources Western Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council is scheduled to discuss deer camp survey results, Michigan moose history and responses to council resolutions when the panel meets Thursday, March 21, in Dickinson County.

The meeting will be 5 to 7:30 p.m. Central time in room 231 at Bay College West, 2801 North U.S. 2 in Iron Mountain.

Five new members will be introduced to the council. DNR staffers will offer division reports. Committee reports will also be delivered.

The public can offer comments to the discussion during two specified periods during the meeting. For instructions on the procedure, go online to Michigan.gov/UPCAC.

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.
