Conversations & Coffee with DNR fisheries staff scheduled throughout state Those interested in discussing local and statewide fisheries management activities with Michigan Department of Natural Resources staff are encouraged to stop by one of several upcoming “Conversations & Coffee” events taking place around the state this spring. The DNR Fisheries Division has hosted “Conversations & Coffee” the past few years to give people an opportunity to meet with managers and biologists, discuss local issues and management activities, and get specific questions answered. These meetings are extremely informal; at many of the meetings no formal presentations will be made. Information on local and statewide regulation changes affecting anglers also will be made available at these meetings. Refreshments will be provided.
