Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources is seeking input from the public on a draft of the state’s updated public lands strategy.

 

The state has about 4.6 million acres of state forests, parks, trails, game and wildlife areas and other public lands.

 

The DNR says feedback on the draft will be accepted through Feb. 12.

 

Input could be incorporated in the development of a final land strategy.

 

That strategy will be submitted to the state Legislature by July 1.

 

The DNR says a land strategy was created in 2013 to provide a framework for conserving and managing public lands to ensure their best use for Michigan residents and visitors.
