Among agenda items selected by council members, the group is scheduled to receive a presentation from the Office of Public Lands, a DNR budget overview and an update on a project which compares two alternative methods to estimate wolf abundance in the U.P. In addition, reports from regional division representatives will be provided.

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.
