The DNR is hosting a first annual public meeting on March 9 to review the proposed 2023 Glacial Lake Grantsburg Water Management Plan. Crex Meadows Wildlife Area staff will provide a recap of management actions taken during 2022 and share goals and objectives for 2023.
The Glacial Lake Grantsburg property includes Crex Meadows, Fish Lake and Amsterdam Sloughs wildlife areas, all of which are vital contributors to the preservation of oak/pine barrens, a rare and globally imperiled natural community, in the Northwest Sands Ecological Landscape.
These properties provide hunting, trapping, gathering, wildlife watching and educational opportunities. The abundance and diversity of wildlife, including rare bird species that inhabit this landscape, attracts an international audience who appreciate not only the wildlife, but also the grand scale of wetlands and oak/pine barrens found here.
The primary management actions used as part of the management plan on the Glacial Lake Grantsburg work unit to maintain, restore, and enhance the quality and extent of open wetlands that benefit wildlife species are water level manipulations and land management.
If you are interested in learning more about the Glacial Lake Grantsburg work unit and the proposed management plan, please join us either in person or virtually. Meeting details are below. Registration is required for anyone who wants to provide comment on the proposed plan and encouraged for anyone attending whether virtually or in-person.
If you’re unable to attend the meeting but would still like to provide feedback on the proposed management plan, visit the DNR’s public input webpage for more information about how to submit comments via email or mail.
