Northwoods Land Trust

The Northwoods Land Trust reports another successful year preserving lands for future generations.

The Northwoods Land Trust  is a non-profit conservation organization  in Eagle River. They work with property owners, accepting conservation easements on property with natural or scenic resource values.
