MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public listening session for the proposed Wolf Management Plan on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023, as part of the public review and comment period.
This listening session is an additional opportunity to provide input on the proposed plan while the public review and comment period remains open until Feb. 28.
Noon CST requires registration on Feb. 6 for anyone wishing to provide a comment on the proposed plan during the listening session. Registrants will speak in the order they’ve signed up, and each speaker will have two minutes. Speakers are also encouraged to review the plan on the DNR’s Wolf Management Plan webpage before joining the listening session.
Members of the public who do not wish to provide testimony during the hearing and only want to listen can watch a live feed of the hearing on the DNR’s YouTube channel. After the event, the recording will be accessible on YouTube for on-demand viewing.
DNR staff will give a brief plan overview, and the public comment period will immediately follow. Staff will not be addressing questions to ensure we hear from everyone who registers to speak.
In addition to the public listening session, the DNR will continue to accept comments through the Online Comment Tool, email (DNRWildlifeSwitchboard@wisconsin.gov), or the mail until 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 28, 2023.
