Subject: DNR is Gathering Public Input on Possible Designation of Additional Wildlands

You are receiving this message because of your interest in Maryland’s natural resources. Starting today, the Department of Natural Resources will be holding public meetings in nine counties across the State to collect comments on designating additional Wildlands in Maryland’s Wildlands Preservation System. Click here for more information.

DNR is currently seeking input on 27 areas of State land that may be suitable for Wildland designation. Information and maps showing the location of the areas are available here.

The public meetings will focus on the county in which proposed new or expanded Wildlands are located, but representatives will accept comments regarding any aspect of the proposed designations.
