Mapping and inventorying state forest roads is an ongoing effort, with reviews being completed on the ground by DNR staff as well as an in-depth review of public comments each year:
View current maps and make comments at michigan.gov/forestroads.
We want you to be involved in state forest planning - also known as our compartment review process. Our plans for the forest include harvesting timber, planting trees, prescribed burning and maintaining fields and open areas – activities that help to provide wildlife habitat, control invasive species and improve the overall health of the forest.
Check back in the spring to look over proposals, view maps of the affected areas and provide feedback.
Public input is an important part of the park general management planning process. Opportunities to provide feedback on in-progress park management plans will be announced on this page when there is a public comment period or open house occurring. Comments and questions can be directed to: DNR-PRD-Planning@michigan.gov
The public is invited to provide input on a draft general management plan that will guide the future of Maybury State Park (Northville Township) in Wayne County.

The DNR is working on a new master plan for William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor. Comments also may be sent via email to Ujijji Davis of Smith Group/JJR, a consulting agency on the project, at email@example.com.
In March 2018, the United States Gypsum Company (USG) submitted a Land Transaction Application to purchase 580 acres of land and minerals in Alabaster Township in Iosco County, Michigan. USG has proposed the transaction in order to support its existing gypsum quarry operation on adjacent land in southeastern Iosco County. The proposal currently is under review by DNR staff.
