DNR Hosts Recreational Opportunities Analysis Session in De Pere Oct. 17

The public will have an opportunity to provide input on two draft chapters of a Department of Natural Resources Recreation Opportunities Analysis. The Recreation Opportunities Analysis is examining existing outdoor-based recreation opportunities and future recreation opportunities in eight regions throughout the state. The initial drafts identify recreation opportunities in the Great Northwest (Douglas, Bayfield, Ashland, Burnett, Washburn, Sawyer, Polk, Barron and Rusk counties) and Upper Lake Michigan Coastal Regions (Marinette, Oconto, Manitowoc, Brown, Kewaunee and Door counties) and the potential role of DNR-managed properties in helping to meet these opportunities. Comments are welcome on the draft chapters through Oct. 27. Open house meetings are scheduled from 4-7 pm in each region where department staff will provide an overview at 5:30 pm. The regional meeting will be held Tuesday, Oct. 17, Brown County Library, Kress Family Branch, 333 N. Broadway St., De Pere.
