The Michigan and Indiana Departments of Natural Resources held public meetings to seek public comment on the development of a Habitat Conservation Plan for the federally endangered Mitchell’s satyr butterfly.
The Departments were particularly interested in identifying issues, concerns, and opportunities associated with development of this two-state Habitat Conservation Plan. They also wanted to identify any other associated environmental factors and effects on the environment as a result of implementing the Plan.
The Departments hosted three public meetings in addition to accepting written comments. Each meeting included a short presentation followed by an opportunity for questions and input on the plan.
Public comments were accepted through April 15, 2007. Comments will be incorporated into the plan concept, but comments at any time are appreciated and may be incorporated into plan development.
