DNR Forestry to host virtual open house
The Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources’ Division of Forestry will host a virtual open house tomorrow (Thursday) from 6 to 8 p.m.
This event will be much like past in-person open houses, but on Microsoft Teams. Division personnel will deliver a brief state forest overview of 2021 and what to expect in 2022. Those attending will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on ideas and issues. Written comments can be submitted at dnr.IN.gov/forestry/state-forest-management/public-comment/submit.
“These open house events provide Hoosiers with a chance to receive first-hand information about how the state forests are working to provide diverse wildlife habitat, forest products and recreational opportunities,” John Seifert, state forester, said. “They also allow us to receive valuable feedback from our neighbors and users about state forest management. I encourage everyone who has an interest to participate.”
