People interested in how Indiana’s state forests are run may share their views at a series of open houses starting next month.
Seven open houses between March and September will cover nine state forests and two state recreation areas.
At each event, the DNR Division of Forestry will provide information about recreational activities, budget, staffing, major projects, the current DNR Division of Forestry Strategic Plan, invasive species and forest resource management.
Attendees may talk directly with DNR personnel or, if they prefer, submit written comments. Some open houses will include a tour of facilities.
An open house for Jackson-Washington State Forest is set from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. May 17 at Starve Hollow State Recreation Area’s nature center. Call 358-2160 for information. Staff from Starve Hollow will also be present.
At 5 p.m., attendees may join a woodland tour of a recent timber harvest area.
