Minnesota’s Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council members tour sites of Lock and Dam deterrent, new Keystone WMA

LSOHC members toured Keystone WMA (above) in Hugo and May Township. The new Minnesota WMA was previously owned by Kelley Farms and has 1,833 acres of land that will be open for public access once the land is cleaned up. Proponents hope to have pieces of the WMA open this fall for hunting and then the rest available in a year or two. (Photos by Brian Mozey)

Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council members recently toured two locations funded by the Outdoor Heritage Fund. The sites included Lock and Dam 5 in Minnesota City and Keystone Wildlife Management Area in Hugo and May Township.
The tour began at Lock and Dam 5, where $12 million was recommended by the LSOHC and approved by the Minnesota Legislature to construct a deterrent preventing Asian carp passage. The funding became available after the February 2024 state budget forecast revealed an additional $12 million available from the fund.
