Upper Cullen Lake


he Trust for Public Land is in the process of protecting 146 acres of high quality habitat on Upper Cullen Lake in Crow Wing County. This land has high biodiversity significance and is on a lake with no current public access. Conservation of this land will protect high quality habitat, connect with existing public land, provide public lake access and recreation opportunities, and prevent forest fragmentation. The Upper Cullen site will protect over 2700 feet of lakeshore and over 1000 feet of a designated trout stream. Crow Wing County owns land adjacent to this property and will be the permanent steward. The County will manage the land for public hunting, fishing, and hiking. This land is threatened by development and CPL funding is needed for protection. The project has strong local support from the DNR, the township, the county, and local conservation organizations. This CPL grant application seeks funding for the second and final phase of this acquisition (est 27acres).
