UPM Blandin land closed to all motorized access until May 15

UPM Blandin foresters are asking the public to to refrain from any motorized access to its forest lands until May 15. With spring breakup underway following our nearly five-month deep freeze, the land and roads are very susceptible to damage. 

Motorized access during this closure period could result in a Land-Use Trespass Violation enforced by Minnesota DNR Conservation Officers.

UPM Blandin welcomes pedestrian visitors to its forest lands during the closure period.
