The acquisition of this sensitive 440 acre parcel, containing all of the shoreline of a 75 acre undeveloped lake, would create a new SNA open to public hunting and fishing. The land is largely surrounded by state land and would successfully connect and protect thousands of acres of high quality forest, wetland, creek, and lakeshore. This project will help implement several state priorities for fish, wildlife and habitat protection, as well as providing water quality and natural resource recreation benefits. Listed for sale, this land is threatened with development with potential hillside home sites overlooking the lake. This protection effort has strong local support.
