Final Comment Period for Community Forest

Planning is almost complete for the Yellow Dog River Community Forest project. We have now conducted two public planning sessions, one online survey, and over 10 Community Forest Committee meetings to create the draft Yellow Dog River Community Forest Plan. We now open the last comment period for public input and you have until February 6th to provide your thoughts on the future management of the area. We want to hear from you! For ease of review, please download the Plan Components. This document contains the Community Forest Purpose Statement, Goals/Objectives, Zone Descriptions, Zoning Map, and link to an online survey where you can provide your input. Please contact us if you have any questions at (906)345-9223 or

If you are new to the project, please visit our Community Forest page that tells about our recent success in acquiring 688 acres to create a protected area. The project began in 2013 and is in its final stages. Also know that we are holding the Community Forest Celebration on February 8th and we would love for you to join us. See our Facebook Page for more details.
