DNR Accessibility Advisory Council to meet June 2 in Okemos

The Department of Natural Resources today announced that the DNR Accessibility Advisory Council will hold its next regular meeting Tuesday, June 2, at the Manufactured Housing, Recreation Vehicles & Campground Association, located at 2222 Association Drive in Okemos, Michigan. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. 

The council will receive information about the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund and other grant programs, a legislative update and other department updates related to structural changes and the DNR’s accessibility team. The council also will revisit its structure, goals and priorities, and discuss all-terrain vehicle use on state property and hunting/fishing licenses for people with disabilities. 

The Accessibility Advisory Council was created by the DNR in 2007. The council’s purpose is to make recommendations to the department director and staff regarding accessibility, as well as provide input, advice and guidance on the development, management and planning associated with providing accessible recreation opportunities to all users statewide.  

The June 2 meeting location is barrier-free. Those seeking information about this meeting, wishing to provide public comment on any accessibility issue, or needing additional accommodations to attend this meeting should contact the DNR Finance and Operations Division at 517-284-5946 (TTY/TDD711 Michigan Relay Center for the hearing impaired) at least seven business days before the meeting.  

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state’s natural and cultural resources for current and future generations. For more information, go to www.michigan.gov/dnr.
