More than 1,000 acres located along the headwaters of the Wisconsin River in Vilas county has been preserved as part of the state's Forest Legacy program. This partnership involves two private landowners and the State of Wisconsin protects wooded forest land and 2 miles of Wisconsin River riparian habitat, and contributes to existing public lands. This project adjoins the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest along the east border, and is in close to the Ottawa National Forest, the Spruce Grouse State Natural Area and the Vilas County Forest. We hear more from Joe Hovel from Partners In Forestry Landowner Cooperative about the agreement announced this week...
