Officials propose new state natural areas

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin environmental officials want to designate six new state natural areas.

State-designated natural areas are zones on state land devoted to scientific research and preservation. According to the Department of Natural Resources, the designation doesn’t affect any existing uses or recreational access.

The new areas would include two zones within the St. Croix Islands and Cylon State Wildlife areas, three zones within the Chippewa Moraine unit of the National Ice Age Reserve and a portion of Brunet Island State Park.

The DNR will take public comments on the plan through Thursday, April 1.
