Portage County Wildlife Fund


June 10, 2010 - Stevens Point - The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin, the Portage County Wildlife Fund and the Portage County Land Preservation Fund Committee have worked together to acquire 124 acres in the western portion of Portage County.  The land was donated to the Community Foundation by its previous owner, the Portage County Wildlife Club.  Mill Creek meanders through the property which is on County “O” south of Junction City.  “The property will be maintained in its natural state, and will be open to the public for hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and cross country skiing” said Gary Speckmann, Portage County Parks Director.

Funding for the project was made available by grants from the Warren Knowles-Gaylord Nelson Stewardship Program through the Department of Natural Resources and the Portage County Land Preservation Fund and funding from the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin.  “This is a great example of a public/private partnership that allowed us preserve this environmentally diverse property for public use” said Terry Rothmann, Executive Director of the Community Foundation.

“This transaction will allow the Portage County Wildlife Fund at the Community Foundation to make future distributions to promote hunting, fishing and wildlife preservation activities in Portage County, plus offer scholarships to College of Natural Resources students at UWSP” said Jim Koziol, Fund Representative.
