The state Division of Natural Resources wants to know how the public feels about allowing alcohol at some private events at state parks.

The parks system enacted a general prohibition of alcohol at all state parks and forests in 1985, but spokesman Hoy Murphy says a changing marketplace has led the DNR to consider some changes.

Murphy says the division has received requests from people who would like to serve alcohol at wedding receptions or at picnic shelters.

But Murphy says that even if the policy change is approved, it would not apply to all parks. He says historical parks and others that should be kept more family friendly would not be included.

The DNR is accepting comments on the proposed rule change through Friday.
