It takes a village to conserve land that was headed toward development. DNR and its partners did just that.
The land, which was headed towards development, has been owned and harvested by local timber companies for more than 100 years.
Now, DNR will manage it as part of the Middle Fork Natural Resources Conservation Area, which includes some of the state’s most popular trailheads, like Mailbox Peak. The purchase allows DNR to provide better access and amenities for those coming to hike Mailbox Peak.
The purchase was funded in part from a state Recreation and Conservation Office grant awarded to DNR.
