LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A review is planned of Michigan’s game areas to help determine a vision for their future use and look at ways to expand recreational uses amid conservation efforts.

Plans for the Blue Ribbon Advisory Group were announced last week by Michigan Department of Natural Resources Director Keith Creagh at a meeting of the Natural Resources Commission. The DNR is responsible for creating and maintaining wildlife habitats in the areas.

The DNR says in a statement Monday the group will examine use; funds and agreements to acquire land; potential habitat or strategic management changes that could enhance hunting, trapping or fishing; and prospects for expanding recreational uses.

The group will begin a review of state game areas in southwest Michigan and then focus on those in southeastern Michigan.
