Wis DNR Southwest Savanna Planning Region

Posted by
Fellow Snowmobilers:
I was not made aware of the comment period on this, So I contacted the DNR……
They told me they would accept comments through out the planning period. 
We want any and all to comment on the following:
We want all snowmobile trails that are currently located on these properties to be kept in the updated plan.
We ask that the snowmobile route going into New Glarus Woods from New Glarus, be extended approximately an 1/8 of a mile, to access Culvers and the Cenex Coop Fuel Station.
We demand that all snowmobiling remain on The Military Ridge Trail all the way to the DNR Parking lot East of the City of Verona, as current.
Comment info is listed below.
Please act now! Make Your Voices heard!
