The Eastern Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Council will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Little Bear East Arena, 275 Marquette St., in St. Ignace.

Among its agenda items, the council is scheduled to receive updates on the recent firearm deer hunting season, state park statistics, deer wintering complex treatment planning efforts, DNR Wolf Management Advisory Council activity and projections for the upcoming snowmobile season.

In accordance with local health department recommendations, participants are strongly encouraged to wear masks. Anyone feeling ill is asked to not attend.

The DNR’s eastern and western Upper Peninsula citizens’ advisory councils are designed to provide local input to advise the DNR on regional programs and policies, identify areas in which the department can be more effective and responsive and offer insight and guidance from members’ own experiences and constituencies.

The council members represent a wide variety of natural resource and recreation interests.

Agenda items are set by the council members and council recommendations are forwarded to the DNR for consideration.

At 9 a.m. Tuesday, the Wolf Management Advisory Council will also meet at the Little Bear East Arena in St. Ignace.

The public is welcome to attend.

The council is established to provide non-binding recommendations on the proper management of wolves in Michigan.

The council has met monthly since August.
