The Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Eastern Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council will meet virtually in a web conference from 6 to 8:30 p.m. EST Tuesday, Feb. 9.

This council session is being held virtually in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Among agenda items selected by council members, the group is scheduled to receive updates on chronic wasting disease, wolf delisting status, the state forest management plan and council membership.

The public may participate in the session by participating in the virtual format. For meeting instructions and additional details please, contact Kristi Dahlstrom at dahlstromk@michigan.gov or 906-226-1331 by 3 p.m. EST Monday, Feb. 8.

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.
