DNR PROJECT BOUNDARY DEDICATION AND TRANSFER IN
JURISDICTION BETWEEN DIVISIONS
The proposed 2020 project boundaries contain a total of 5,502,300
acres of state and private lands.  When compared to the 2004 project
boundary acreage of 6,569,500 acres, a total of 1,067,200 acres of
private lands have been removed from state ownership, which will
serve to focus future land acquisition in a more strategic manner.
 
In addition, several minor jurisdictional transfers between DNR Divisions
are proposed as boundary lines are redrawn.  Two of the more significant
changes are as follows:
 
Wilderness State Park – Emmet County
Cross Village Township, T38N, R06W, Sections 24-25; and
Bliss Township, T38N, R05W, Sections 1, 3, 19, and 30
1,525 acres to be transferred from the Forest Resources Division to
the Parks and Recreation Division
 
Hungarian Falls – Houghton County
Schoolcraft Township, T55N, R33W, Sections 11-13
116 acres to be transferred from the Forest Resources Division to
the Parks and Recreation Division
