Governor Doyle today announced nearly $3.8 million in funding to protect some of Wisconsin’s unique natural areas for public use and help protect the Nemadji River area.

The project will protect 6 miles of undeveloped river frontage on the Nemadji River, an area that is home to wildlife species

The Nemadji River project will also protect the area’s unique forests and help enhance the water quality of the St. Louis Estuary and the Superior Bay.

In addition to protecting local habitats and resources, the Nemadji River project will open the area for year-round public recreation use including hunting, fishing, trapping, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, carry-in boating, wildlife viewing and swimming.
