DNR Seeking Public Comment On Greater Prairie-Chicken Management Plan; Virtual Open House Jan. 18

Deadline For Public Comments Is Feb. 18, 2022

MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking public comment on the first draft of the state's greater prairie-chicken management plan. The deadline to submit comments is Feb. 18, 2022.

The plan outlines four potential paths forward for greater prairie-chicken management in Wisconsin through 2032. Each of the four paths has its own funding needs and expected outcomes. View the proposed plan here.

DNR staff will present the plan to the public during a virtual open house session on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022 from 6-8 p.m.

"The greater prairie-chicken in Wisconsin has a rich and storied history,” said Alaina Gerrits, DNR Wildlife Biologist. “We’re looking forward to gathering public input on the best path forward for managing this species into the future. The drafting of this plan was based on the best available science and highlights the critical requirements of landscape-level management for this species which has specific habitat needs.”

Greater prairie-chickens are one of the most unique and charismatic wildlife species in Wisconsin, attracting many people who travel miles each spring to watch their intriguing mating displays.

Prior to 1830, greater prairie-chickens were abundant in the extensive native prairies and oak openings throughout the southern half of the state. Habitat loss has caused large shifts in the range and abundance of prairie-chickens, and today they exist in isolated areas in a small portion of central Wisconsin.

More information is available about greater prairie-chickens in Wisconsin on the DNR’s website.

The public is encouraged to submit comments regarding the draft greater prairie-chicken management plan by no later than Friday, Feb. 18, 2022. Please submit comments to:

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
C/O Alaina Gerrits - Bureau of Wildlife Management
P.O. Box 199 Wausaukee, WI 54177
