DNR’s Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Councils to meet

MARQUETTE — A good deal of great information will be offered for the public and to a joint session of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Eastern and Western U.P. Citizens’ Advisory Councils, March 14 in Marquette Township.

The two panels meet bi-monthly throughout the year. However, once each year, the two councils – with a combined total of 40 members – meet in joint session in the centrally-located Marquette area.

The meeting will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m. EDT at the Marquette Township Community Center, located at 1000 Commerce Drive in Marquette Township.

DNR wildlife research biologist Dean Beyer will present an update on the ongoing U.P. Predator-Prey study. Ron Yesney, DNR U.P. trails coordinator, will discuss progress on Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail development.

The trailer for the new season of the “Wardens” television show, which airs Mondays at 9:30 p.m. on the Outdoor Channel, will be shown. The episodes airing this season feature Michigan DNR conservation officers.
