The Indiana Natural Resources Commission (NRC) will conduct its next bimonthly meeting at 10 a.m. (ET) Tuesday, Nov. 13, at Fort Harrison State Park, in the Garrison Ballroom, 6002 North Post Road in Indianapolis.

Among other things, the NRC is scheduled to consider a request for preliminary adoption of the repeal 312 IAC 18-3-21, which governs the control of hydrilla, a prohibited invasive aquatic plant; the extension of the no-boating zone on the East Swimming Beach located in Whihala Beach County Park in Whiting; and amendments to the state’s roster of animals, insects, and plants which are extirpated, endangered, threatened, or rare.

The NRC is an autonomous board that addresses topics pertaining to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. NRC members include the DNR director, heads of three other state agencies (Environmental Management, Tourism Development, and Transportation), six citizens appointed by the governor on a bipartisan basis, the chair of the DNR’s advisory council, and the president of the Indiana Academy of Science.
