MADISON (WKOW) – The state Department of Natural Resources will host an open house on how to best use a northern Wisconsin marsh on August 23 at the Manitowish Waters Community Center.
The public will get a chance to discuss how the marsh should be managed.
Volunteer citizen panels developed master plan alternatives for the marsh in 1999, but the DNR put that effort on hold in 2000 to allow staff to focus on a plan for the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest.
The DNR is updating its master plan for the 4,800 acre Powell Marsh Wildlife Area just outside Manitowish Waters in Vilas County. The property includes a 1,800 acre wildlife refuge that is closed to hunting in the fall.
