Land purchase aims to expand access to Lake Superior and protect habitat for at-risk shorebird
By Danielle Kaeding, Wisconsin Public Radio
The state will add a half-mile of shoreline to the Brule River State Forest that will expand public access to Lake Superior and protect habitat for an endangered shorebird.
In April, the Natural Resources Board approved the acquisition of almost 200 acres of private land within the Brule River State Forest in Douglas County. The land purchase is made possible with a $528,000 in funding under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and a $52,800 donation from the Landmark Conservancy Trust.
