Minn. DNR seeks input on accessibility of wildlife areas for people with disabilities
Ideas will help shape proposals for improved opportunities across the state
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking input on ways to improve access to wildlife management areas for people with disabilities.
People can share their input now through Friday, Jan. 22, on the DNR’s community engagement page, https://engage.dnr.state.mn.us/fisheries-public-input-wildlife-public-input. .
The DNR will use the input to shape recommendations the agency will make to the Minnesota Legislature in February about increasing accessibility to WMAs. The DNR continues to work closely with the Minnesota Council on Disability and others to identify ways to increase access to the state wildlife lands.
The DNR manages a system of 1.3 million acres of land in about 1,500 WMAs. This land is open to everyone for a variety of outdoor activities, including hunting and trapping, fishing, wildlife watching and nature photography.
