Horseshoe Lake Restoration


This is a recent DNR Fisheries acquisition, the Horseshoe Lake AMA, George and Margaret Weaver Tract. The property consists of 90 acres and 4200 feet of lakeshore on Horseshoe Lake. There is a 50-acre field on the property, of which 39.7 acres is in soybeans and approximately 10.3 acres is smooth brome. We propose to break existing tile to restore shallow wetland features and to plant prairie on 50 acres.
