Natural Resources Commission meets Thursday in Lansing

Michigan state parks' centennial anniversary, northern Lake Huron trout regulations and migratory game bird hunting seasons are just a few topics on the agenda for the next meeting of the Michigan Natural Resources Commission Thursday, Feb. 14, in Lansing. The meeting, including all subcommittee sessions, will take place in conference rooms 101-103 of the Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Ave. The first meeting (State Parks Advisory Committee) starts at 8 a.m., followed by the Policy Committee on Wildlife and Fisheries at 10:30 a.m. and Committee of the Whole at 1 p.m.

During the meeting, Department of Natural Resources Director Dan Eichinger is expected to approve a land use order governing proposed changes to off-road vehicle use on state forest roads in the northern Lower Peninsula, as part of a statewide inventory of those roads as dictated by Public Act 288 of 2016. The director also will consider several land transactions.
