Upper Peninsula Citizens' Advisory Councils

  • The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has two 20-member citizens’ advisory councils in the Upper Peninsula, which were created in 2007 and first convened the following year. The two councils (east and west) 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. Members represent a wide spectrum of natural resource and recreation interests from hunters, boaters and off-road vehicle riders, to foresters, birdwatchers and skiers.

    For more information on the councils, contact Stacy Haughey, DNR Upper Peninsula regional coordinator, at 906-226-1331.
