LANSING — Keep Michigan Wolves Protected will host 11 statewide town hall meetings during the next four weeks to educate voters and answer questions about the two referendum proposals on the Nov. 4 ballot.

“We’re confident that when Michigan citizens review the proposals carefully, they’ll vote NO to the trophy hunting of wolves and NO to the power grab by politicians intent on taking away their voting rights,” said Jill Fritz, director of Keep Michigan Wolves Protected.

Proposal 1 would designate gray wolves as a game species, and allow a trophy hunting and trapping season on them. Proposal 2 would grant the Natural Resources Commission the power to designate wolves and other animals as game species to be hunted, without legislative approval.

Here is a list of times and locations for the upcoming town hall meetings in the Upper Peninsula:

  • 6:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 12 at the Kewadin Casino & Resort, 2186 Shunk Rd., Sault Ste. Marie
  • 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 13 at the Ramada Inn, 412 W. Washington St., Marquette
