Event Description:
The DNR Division of Forestry will host open houses at many of its locations on Feb. 26 and 27.

During the events, division personnel will detail how the division works to protect forests and take input and suggestions regarding the development of its next five-year strategic direction. This plan will focus on all aspects of Indiana forests, including urban forests, forests on private lands, forests on public lands and nursery production.

The current five-year strategic direction can be viewed at https://www.in.gov/dnr/forestry/files/fo-State_Forest_Strategic_Plan_2015_2019.pdf.

At each open house, division staff will provide information about recreational activities, major projects, forest resource management, and state forest planning. Each open house will provide attendees information and the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the draft of the 2020-2024 Strategic Direction. Attendees will be able to speak with DNR personnel and submit written comments.

"These open houses 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," State Forester John Seifert 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."
