Casperson Media Advisory: Senate committee to hold public hearing in Gaylord Feb. 6

LANSING, Mich.—The state Senate Natural Resources, Environment and Great Lakes Committee will take to the road next week, hosting a public hearing to discuss the state Department of Natural Resources’ Living Legacies or Biodiversity Stewardship Area program.

The meeting will take place Feb. 6th at 10 a.m. in room U-111/112 of the University Center in Gaylord. The facility is located at 80 Livingston Blvd, Gaylord, MI 49735.

“The committee wants to hear from the public on the DNR’s biodiversity program, so we invite people to attend Monday’s meeting and testify,” said Casperson, Escanaba. “Management and use of state land is an important issue that our citizens want to be involved with as recreation, tourism and natural resource based economic activity are vital parts of our communities.”
