Michigan Natural Areas Council Fall Meeting
Sunday, November 7
2:00 pm.
Matthaei Botanical Garden, 1800 North Dixboro Road, Ann Arbor, MI

Speaker: Arlin Wasserman, Michigan Land Use Institute
"Where is the public in the public trust?"

Michigan's 4.5 million acres of state forests, parks, and game and state
recreation areas are one of the state's true treasures and include more
state-owned land than any state east of the Mississippi River.  In the
last decade, the state's management of these lands has gone through
dramatic changes.  With the public's role in decision-making rapidly
shrinking, many conservationists wonder about the commitment to
preserving the integrity of these lands for future generations.  Come hear
this discussion about the future of Michigan's public lands.

Arlin Wasserman is a policy analyst for the Michigan Land Use Institute.
He is a graduate of the School of Natural Resources and Environment and
the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.  The Michigan
Land Use Institute, based in Northern Michigan, is a 4-year old non-profit
organization working to raise awareness of public resource and land use
management in Michigan.
