The new office, which replaces the now-closed DNR office on Emerson Road Traverse City, is located three quarters of a mile south of Chums Corner. It is one of 11 full-service DNR customer service centers around the state.
These centers are open to the public Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to help customers who want to buy a license, ask a question, learn about seasonal regulations, invite the DNR to participate in a school or community program, or simply learn more about Michigan’s outdoor recreation opportunities.
Services the Traverse City Customer Service Center will provide include:
- Selling Recreation Passports; hunting, fishing and ORV licenses; and snowmobile and ORV trail permits.
- Issuing a variety of permits, including permits for hunters, anglers and ORV riders with disabilities, crop damage permits for farmers, and salvage permits for roadkill animals.
- Issuing temporary replacement hunter safety certificates.
- Directing customers to the nearest licensed wildlife rehabilitator for injured animals.
The Traverse City Customer Service Center’s phone number is 231-922-5280.
