LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Officials are inviting the public to comment on a draft plan for managing Lake Michigan islands that are under the jurisdiction of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
The plan deals with land administered by the DNR on Beaver, Garden, High, Hog, North Fox, South Fox and Whiskey islands.
The agency hosted public meetings last year to hear ideas from island residents, partners, tribal governments, local governments and conservation organizations. Information gathered from the meetings was used to craft the plan.
Comments can be sent by e-mail to DNR field operations manager Keith Kintigh before Aug. 31 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An open house will be held Monday at 1 p.m. at Beaver Island Community School.
