DNR and Michigan Tech unveil ANR North for August 2017
March 13, 2017
When Michigan Technological University (MTU) offered to partner with DNR to offer a new Upper Peninsula version of ANR, a pilot program was held in August of 2016. The pilot gave select educators an opportunity to participate and evaluate the program. They then assisted in planning and designing future ANR North courses. This August, ANR North will debut for the first time beginning the evening of Sunday the 6th and ending Thursday evening, the 10th. Sunday and Friday allow travel time to and from the western UP.
ANR North will be an introduction to the vast and magnificent natural resources of the western UP and include sessions on forestry, parks management, fish and wildlife, copper mining impacts and tribal resource management. The fee for five nights lodging (single room), 13 meals, instruction and field trip costs is $350. ANR North will be held at MTU’s Ford Center and is limited in size to 20 educators so expect it to fill up quickly.
