MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural is seeking public feedback on interim forest management plans for five state properties.

The plans will allow timber taken off the properties to continue to be certified as sustainably managed until formal master plans are finished. The properties include the Waunakee Wildlife Area in Dane County; the Albany Wildlife Area in Green County; The Moose Lake State Natural Area in Iron County; the Spring Creek Wildlife Area in Price County; and Kohler-Andre State Park in Sheboygan County.

The plans are available on the DNR's website. The agency will take public comments on them through Nov. 19.
