Black Ash Swamp purchase moves forward

The Glacial Lakes Conservancy is one step closer to acquiring a portion of Kewaunee County’s Black Ash Swamp. The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Department approved the plan for the conservancy to purchase approximately 420 acres of Black Ash Swamp, which is located near the border of Door and Kewaunee Counties. With help from a Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Grant, the conservancy will purchase the property instead of taxes, which accounted for over $14,000 of the 2018 tax levy in the Town of Lincoln. Land and Water Conservation Committee Chairperson Chuck Wagner said the property could be open for public use once it is protected.

The Kewaunee County Board will have the final say on the future of the Black Ash Swamp when it meets on Tuesday.
