Public comments are being accepted by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) on a draft plan for conserving the remaining open spaces and natural areas in the Lake Erie Region. In addition, as part of the state's efforts to meet eligibility on the federal Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program, Ohio will hold two public meetings in November to solicit feedback on the draft plan.

The Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program was established to protect coastal and estuarine lands considered important for their ecological, conservation, recreational, historical or aesthetic value. The program offers funding potential to local communities and land management organizations for the protection of coastal and estuarine lands in the Lake Erie watershed.
