LANSING, MI (WLNS) – With warmer weather on the way many families will be out enjoying Michigan parks and Lansing Parks and Recreation officials want to make sure those parks stay in good condition and may even break ground on a few more.
The DNR has a five year master plan and is using it as a guide for the city as they work to shape the department’s goals. The plan is also necessary to be eligible for grants through the Department of Natural Resources.
The plan lists long-term goals including partnering with Michigan State and Fenner Nature Center to brainstorm ways to ward off invasive species, tree planting and replacement, improving access to area rives and much more.
Officials with Lansing Parks and Recreation will formally present their plan to the Lansing City Council tonight and there is also another meeting scheduled for Monday.
Both meetings are open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.
