DNR developing two new northern forest plans

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input into the development of new forest management planning for two major forest regions within the state – the Northern Minnesota and Ontario Peatlands, and the Northern Superior Uplands areas.

The DNR is offering three recorded webinars to engage people “and ensure the needs and expectations of the public and timber industry are better reflected in forest management planning decisions.” The webinars explain the forest management planning process, said Lynn Mizner, DNR statewide forest resource planner.

The first webinar will be available online until July 18 at

Questions and comments about Northern Minnesota and Ontario Peatlands can be directed to Robert Pulford at (218) 833-8704 or Questions about the Northern Superior Uplands can be directed to Lynn Mizner (218) 927-7500, ext. 245 or
