DNR FORUM ON RECREATION
(NOTE: The DNR Forum on recreation is now closed for comments. Thank you to everyone who participated.)
From September 13-17, DNR hosted an online discussion about issues related to recreation on DNR-managed lands. DNR values its relationship with the recreating public and strives to keep an open dialog in a variety of ways. The DNR Forum was one part of this ongoing dialog. Through this Forum, participants could engage in an online conversation with their fellow recreation enthusiasts and share their thoughts and opinions about a variety of topics, including:
- Where you like to recreate and what kinds of recreation you like to do on DNR-managed lands.
- Education and enforcement.
- And more...
This conversation was one tool for DNR to survey the public and capture their thoughts as we move forward in developing our budget and policies in this extraordinarily challenging economic climate.
