DNR HOSTS OPEN HOUSE ON ATLANTA FOREST MANAGEMENT UNIT

LANSING--The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will 
host an open house Thursday, August 23, 2001, to provide 
information and receive public comment on proposed forest 
management treatments to be done in 2003 in the Atlanta 
Forest Management Unit, Mackinaw State Forest.
The open house will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Atlanta 
Field Office, located at 13501 M-33, Atlanta, Michigan.
Each year foresters inventory one-tenth of the 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 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:
* Montmorency County:  Albert, Avery, Briley, Loud, 
Montmorency, and Vienna townships
* Presque Isle County:  Allis, North Allis, Case, Metz, and 
Ocqueoc townships
* Alpena County:  Alpena, Long Rapids, and Wellington 
townships
* Cheboygan County:  Benton Townships
A formal compartment review to decide prescriptions for 
these areas is scheduled for August 30, beginning at 8:30 
a.m. at the Atlanta Field Office.
Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for these 
meetings should contact Mike Mang at 517-732-3541 ext. 5042, 
or Dayle Garlock at 517-785-4251.
