Michigan Natural Resources Commission to discuss topics including state's elk herd and spending for next year


DETROIT — The Michigan Natural Resources Commission is scheduled to discuss a range of topics at its February meeting, from the condition of the state's elk herd to spending priorities for the next fiscal year.

The commission meets Thursday at the Outdoor Adventure Center in Detroit.

It begins with a Michigan State Parks Advisory Committee session to review a management plan for Ludington State Park and a proposed master plan for the Muskegon Sports Complex.

The wildlife and fisheries policy committee will get an update on this year's elk survey.

The Department of Natural Resources will present its fiscal 2017 budget plan. Afterward, the commission will take public comments.

Also, DNR Director Bill Moritz is expected to approve updated regulations on captive game animals and announce decisions on several land transactions.
