The Department of Natural Resources' Western Upper Peninsula Citizens' Advisory Council (CAC) will meet in Iron County on Monday, May 20, at the Windsor Center Auditorium, located at 612 West Adams St., Iron River.
Beginning at 4:30 p.m. (Central), DNR staff will present division reports on current DNR projects and business and answer questions from council members and the public. The council meeting will immediately follow from 5 to 7 p.m. (all times are Central).
Agenda items include:
- Update on wolf management and the limited U.P. wolf hunt;
- Update on proposed license fee increase package;
- Council discussion on future agenda topics; and
- Public comment (for public comment instructions, see www.michigan.gov/upcac).
The Eastern Upper Peninsula and Western Upper Peninsula CACs are designed 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 stakeholders and interest groups. Agenda items are set by the council members, and council recommendations are forwarded to the DNR for consideration.
CAC meetings are open to the public. Anyone interested in being considered as a future CAC member should fill out the nomination form found on the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/upcac. For more information, contact DNR Upper Peninsula Regional Coordinator Stacy Welling Haughey at 906-228-6561.
