Groups Fundraising To Buy Wildcat Falls Land near Watersmeet

Mining Action Group

A beautiful spot in the Upper Peninsula might be brought back in public control if conservation groups can raise enough money to get the property. Joe Hovel is Director of Partners In Forestry Landowners Cooperative based in Conover, one of the groups hoping to get enough money to buy the land around Wildcat Falls, not far from Watersmeet, about a half hour from Land 0' Lakes.

Joe Hovel says if anyone wants to contribute or find out more information, he says visit the Northwood Alliance website atnorthwoodalliance. org or Partners in Forestry at partnersinforestry. com
