Forestry business leaders meet with state DNR commissioner in Bemidji
BEMIDJI -- Forest industry representatives from across the northern Minnesota region gathered Tuesday at the Mayflower Building in Bemidji to discuss issues with the Department of Natural Resources.
As part of the meeting, DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr was on hand to answer questions on forestry topics and converse about where the industry is headed. As the event unfolded, officials brought up potential funding avenues for reforestation efforts.
In response, Landwehr said the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council could be an option, as it's for fish, game and wildlife.
