The Michigan Department of Natural Resources Western Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council will meet next week to hear an update on an Oman Creek dredging project.
The group will hold its meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
According to Stacy Haughey, the DNR’s Upper Peninsula regional coordinator, the council meetings offer a great deal of information important to those interested in DNR activities throughout the region and give members of the public a voice in those issues.
The council meeting will starts from 5 p.m. CDT (6 p.m. EDT) in the Ski Chalet at the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, located off the south side of 107th Engineers Memorial Highway. Prior to the meeting, from 4:30 p.m-5 p.m. CDT (5:30-6 p.m. EDT), DNR staff members will offer division reports.
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.
