DNR, conservation congress spring hearings online
In keeping with the guidelines from the Department of Health Services, the CDC and WHO, the Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are holding virtual Spring Hearings this year.
Though the in-person portion of the 72 public meetings were to be held in each county April 13 were canceled, the public will continue to have the opportunity to provide input on the natural resources advisory questions from the DNR, Natural Resources Board (NRB), and WCC through the online input option that can be found on the DNR website (search keywords “Spring Hearings”). The link is live as of 7 p.m. April 13.
“We look forward to hearing from the public on these many natural resource issues,” said Larry Bonde, Chair of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress. “We are doing our best to adjust to the current situation and protect the health of our communities while continuing to provide an opportunity for the public to weigh in.”
