  1. DNR Northwest Region - MINONG, Wis. - About 1,400 acres of globally significant habitat, which will benefit public recreation and wildlife, including the flamboyant sharp-tailed grouse, has been preserved thanks to a partnership among the Department of Natural Resources, The Conservation Fund and several regional contributors. The $1-plus million purchase from the Lyme Timber Company was made possible with grants from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, through Walmart's Acres for America program, as well as private donations. This is the first Acres for America funded project in Wisconsin.
