LSOHC approves federal LWCF encumbrance for Keystone WMA

Minnesota's new Keystone WMA consists of rolling hills of prairie for prime upland bird habitat. It also has wooded forests and more than 400 wetland basins. It’s a perfect place for hunting, trapping, bird watching, hiking, and many other outdoor activities. The goal for the DNR is to have the 450-acre parcel open to the public by the fall for the hunting seasons. (Photo by Brian Mozey)

Members of the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council met Wednesday, June 12, to kick off the new year of funding proposals. They also approved a request from the Minnesota DNR to place a federal Land and Water Conservation Fund encumbrance on a 450-acre parcel within the Keystone WMA.
There was debate among members about whether Keystone WMA was the best choice for the encumbrance, but a majority favored it via an 8-3 vote. Keystone WMA, a new property purchased through various Outdoor Heritage Fund proposals, includes 1,833 acres in the northeast Twin Cities metro near Hugo and Stillwater.
