Conservancy seeks swamp land purchase

Swampland located near the border of Door and Kewaunee counties could soon have new owners. The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee and the Kewaunee County Board will discuss a resolution supporting the Glacial Lakes Conservancy's purchase of several parcels of the Black Ash Swamp. According to the Wisconsin Wetlands Association, Black Ash Swamp is one of the few large, diverse lowland forests in the region and includes an undeveloped reach of Silver Creek.  Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee Chairperson Chuck Wagner says the acquisition is similar to others in the region.

If acquired, it would be the seventh property in Kewaunee County the Glacial Lakes Conservancy has been able to acquire.
