MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Department of Natural Resources is hosting an open house today focusing on proposed forest management treatments for the Baraga unit, which includes Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties.
The open house is set for 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Baraga Operations Service Center on US-41.
Proposed treatments, which may include timber harvesting, replanting and other management activities, are designed to ensure the sustainability of all forest resources.
Officials say the open houses are a good way for interested parties to learn – well in advance – about the DNR’s proposed treatment plans and to share input toward final decisions.
