Default DNR Announces Series of Statewide Town Hall Meetings to Engage Public

The Department of Natural Resources will host a series of public meetings across the state in April to discuss conservation priorities for the department and the state of Michigan. The Conservation Town Hall meetings will be led by DNR Director Rebecca Humphries, with the assistance of the Michigan State University Extension Service. “These meetings are a chance for the DNR to discuss with a broad range of recreational enthusiasts how to best invest in conservation during these tough economic times,” said Humphries. “As the department charged with managing the state’s natural resources, we want to ensure we are making the best possible decisions in meeting our mission and ensuring a natural heritage for the future.”

Bump to the top. The Novi meeting is coming up on Monday. I was looking at my calender for next week at work and saw my reminder.

Monday, April 20, in the banquet room of the Novi Civic Center, located at 45175 W. 10 Mile Rd. in Novi.

Try to bring a LOT of 4wd buddies to help increase the numbers on our side (and thereby, the perception that 4WD recreation is important to more people).

I'm sure I'll see a bunch of East Siders there tonight, right? I'll be in my GLFWDA jacket.

I hope to see you there. I've been doing a lot of last minute traveling for work so I can't promise. BTW, 6:00 pm.

I am not going to make it after all - work didn't get the memo about work slowing down after April 15.

Out of about 85 people we had 10 GLFWDA members attend which I thought was a pretty good percentage. The only larger group were the horse riders. I found it to be very interesting and well worth my time.

I would have thought being in the metro area there would have been a bigger turnout. We had at least 100 in Midland, and 4 were GLFWDA members.

Glad to see we had 10 GLFWDA members last night, that's awsome!

The horseback riders were out in force at the Midland meeting as well. They seem to be getting the short end of the public land stick.

I thought it was worth it, I'm glad 10 showed, but I was hoping for a better turnout for it being in Novi.

Horse people are not happy, so it seems.
