1,100 More Acres for Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Watching

Your support helped a community conservation group save 1,100 acres along the St. Croix River. Developers had proposed a 200-house subdivision and golf course on the Englewood property. Instead of pavement and putting greens, the area is now managed for hunting, fishing and nature studies. The property includes two ponds surrounded by wetlands, woodlands, blufflands and prairie. The Englewood property is a part of the 52 mile long Lower St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. According to Doug Grann, President & CEO of Wildlife Forever, “This was one of our best projects because it had something for everyone. Wildlife received more habitat, hunters got more access, anglers got more places to fish and there is conservation education for the children.” The project was near Oceola, Wisconsin.
