WDNR Seeking Public Input for Outdoor Recreation Opportunities

WDNR Planning Regions

The Wisconsin DNR is launching a study to examine outdoor-based recreation opportunities and needs in each region of the state. The study will identify future opportunities for providing high-quality recreation experiences and the potential role of department properties in helping to meet those needs.

Over the last few months, the DNR has been working with statewide recreation stakeholders to consider goals and activity attributes. The department is also seeking input on how the public can best be heard. The next steps are to gather feedback from local stakeholders and the general public.

The department is gathering public input through an online questionnaire found on their website. They will also be hosting public open house informational meetings to gather input. Open house meetings for the final two regions, Southern Gateways and Lower Lake Michigan Coastal, will occur from 4-7pm at the following dates and locations:

Tuesday, December 5 – Baraboo Civic Center | 124 2nd Street, Baraboo, WI

Wednesday, December 6 – Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center | N7725 Highway 28, Horicon, WI

Tuesday, December 12 – Milwaukee Urban Ecology Center | 3700 W. Pierce Street, Milwaukee, WI

Wednesday, December 13 – Fitchburg Wyndham Garden Hotel | 2969 Cahill Main, Fitchburg, WI
