Jefferson Co. to expand wildlife habitat, recreation by over 1,800 acres
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A new addition to Jefferson County will include an expanded wildlife area that is also expected to provide more recreational opportunities as early as 2025, the DNR announced Tuesday.
The Department of Natural Resources acquired 1,830 acres next to the Princes Point Wildlife Area, nearly doubling the size of the property. The property will be closed to the public for several wetland restoration projects scheduled to begin late 2023.
Once open to the public, the new wildlife area will provide more space for activities like waterfowl hunting, paddling, and bird-watching opportunities.
