Project Overview
This grant will allow Crow Wing County-Public Land Management (formally named the Land Department) to secure full interest/ownership in 626 acres of property that are currently held as undivided interest parcels. Undivided interest parcels are parcels of real estate with multiple owners each sharing a fractional interest of the entire parcel. Crow Wing County(CWC) has majority of the interest in 15 of 16 parcels and strongly wishes to purchase the private interest holdings to better achieve a balanced management approach for the property. Management and resource protection efforts are non-existent on these parcels due to the fractional interest of multiple owners for each parcel. Acquisition of the private interest in these parcels will consolidate the full public ownership currently managed by CWC and allow access to the public for hunting opportunities and provide habitat protection.
