Resource Management

The Ottawa National Forest actively manages the resources of the Forest - from the soil to the timber and plants that grow in that soil to the minerals underground.  Although the state of Michigan manages the wildlife populations, the Ottawa National Forest manages the habitat on national forest land to provide optimum cover and food for the many species of birds, animals, insects, amphibians, and reptiles that call the Ottawa National Forest Home.
