DNR HOSTS OPEN HOUSE ON GWINN FOREST MANAGEMENT UNIT

LANSING--The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will 
host an open house Monday, August 13, to provide information 
and receive public comment on proposed forest management 
treatments to be done in 2002 in the Gwinn Forest Management 
Unit.
The open house will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the 
Marquette Township Hall, 161 County Road 492, Marquette.	
Each year foresters inventory one-tenth of the state forest. 
The information gathered includes size, age and health of 
trees; wildlife habitat and needs; recreational use; and 
social factors, including proximity to roads and 
neighborhoods. Proposed treatments may include clearcuts, 
selective cuts, opening maintenance, trail relocations and 
campground proposals.
The open house is an opportunity for interested people to 
review the proposed treatments and provide input toward 
final decisions on those treatments. It also provides the 
public an opportunity to talk with foresters and biologists 
about issues of interest.
Each forest management unit is divided into smaller sections 
or compartments to facilitate better administration of the 
resources. Compartments in the following townships are under 
review this year:
* Marquette County: Champion, Chocolay, Ely, Ewing, Forsyth, 
Humboldt, Michigamme, Republic, Sands, Skandia, Tilden and 
Turin townships
* Alger County: Mathias, Onota, and Rock River townships
A formal compartment review to decide prescriptions for 
these areas is scheduled for August 28, beginning at 9 a.m. 
at the Garden Room Restaurant, 2050 US-41 South, Marquette.
Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for these 
meetings should contact Bill Brondyke at 906-346-9201.
