Pembina Beach Ridges #1


Fee acquisition, restoration and enhancement of a 160 acre parcel including approximately 114 acres of native prairie and 46 acres of former CRP acres in the Aspen Parklands Subsection. The Nature Conservancy proposes to restore the former CRP lands using seed collected at the adjacent Tympanuchus WMA and restore a fire regime to the tract to encourage regeneration of prairie species. This property links the Thorson and Tympanuchus WMAs allowing for greater ease in land management, expanding acres open to public use and increases the amount of protected prairie habitat in the area for future generations.
