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.
If you're interested in speaking with Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Division staff members to discuss local and statewide fisheries management activities, you might want to attend one of several virtual "Conversations & Coffee" events taking place this spring.
