Wilderness & Natural Areas
This law (MCL 324.35101 - 35111) allows the state to designate state and privately owned lands as natural and/or wilderness areas. Private land or land under the control of other governmental units may be designated by the DNR in the same way as a wilderness area, wild area, or natural area and administered by the department under a cooperative agreement between the owner and the DNR. Once designated, various activities are prohibited in order to protect the natural values of the land.

(Always refer to the most current version of the law, either by checking the compiled laws, or referring to the Legislative Bureau site above.)
