Project Overview
This application is for a 30.8 acre tract of land that adjoins the existing 37 acre Schwerin Creek Wildlife Management Area near Elkton in Mower County, Minnesota. Schwerin Creek runs through the target acquisition to the WMA. Hunting opportunities for the area include deer, small game, pheasant, and turkey. The acquisition will nearly double the size of the WMA, and provide additional hunting opportunities for the public. Four of the new acres will be restored to natural prairie grassland habitat.
