You have an opportunity to influence forest management! The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) Division of Forestry is preparing its new 10-year strategic action plan for all of Indiana’s forests, known as the 2020 Forest Action Plan. IDNR staff want to hear from groups and organizations as well as individuals on forest management issues in Indiana. The plan is required by the IDNR to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and addresses private and public forests.
