The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering more than 20 parcels of state-owned land for sale in nine Michigan counties.
The sealed-bid auction began Wednesday and runs through Sept. 4.
Properties in Arenac, Alpena, Gladwin, Lake, Montmorency, Muskegon, Otsego, Presque Isle and Saginaw counties are available.
The properties range in size from less than an acre to 40 acres. Some are wooded tracts; others are in close proximity to lakes, ponds and recreational trails.
