LANSING (WWJ) – Thinking of expanding your real estate portfolio? Or finding the ideal getaway for family recreational trips? The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will offer surplus public land in a sealed-bid auction beginning December 6.

“The DNR has surplus properties that we get together – review properties and the surplus ones – that are isolated from other DNR managed lands – they are often difficult for us to manage and they provide limited recreational benefit,” says Michael Michalek with the DNR.
