Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Regional Master Plan

This regional plan covers the Northern Lake Michigan Coastal Ecological Landscape and includes wildlife areas, state parks, natural areas, state forests and fishery areas within five counties: Door, Oconto, Marinette, Waupaca and Shawano. These lands contain a wide-variety of habitat, including the Niagara escarpment, wetlands, bogs, forests and sand dunes, while providing for year-round recreation opportunities.
