PUBLIC MEETINGS TO BE HELD ON FEDERAL AID PROJECTS 

LANSING-The Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Division, will 
conduct a series of three public meetings on August 5, 6, and 7, 1997, to 
present information on the proposed conduct of four federally-assisted 
projects:  Northern Michigan Habitat Management, Southern Michigan Habitat 
Management, Statewide Operations/Maintenance and Wetland Habitat, and 
Ecosystem Planning/Technical Assistance. 

The public meetings will be held at the following locations: Tuesday,

The DNR's Wildlife Division administers over 300,000 acres of state game 
and wildlife area lands for the restoration, conservation, protection, and 
enhancement of wildlife and their habitats. These activities provide 
Michigan's citizens and visitors with many hours of recreational 
opportunities. The Wildlife Division also provides technical assistance on 
wildlife habitat management on 3.8 million acres of state forest lands. In 
addition, surveys and population management studies are conducted
statewide to monitor and improve species' status. 

A portion of these programs is supported by federal Pittman-Robertson funds 
generated from excise taxes on sporting arms and ammunition. 

The public is invited to comment on these four new projects. The review 
period will run from July 15 through August 15, 1997.  Advance copies of 
the proposed project plans will be available beginning July 10 and may be
