Keweenaw for sale? by Dave's Blog

Dave Dempsey writes: HANCOCK - While Wisconsin conservationists are breathing easier after a massive land sale Wednesday, their colleagues in the Keweenaw fear Michigan may not be as lucky.

A release from Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle's office Wednesday announced the sale of 64,633 acres in the state from International Paper to the Nature Conservancy and the state's Department of Natural Resources.

The "Wild Rivers Legacy Forest" project represents the largest land conservation effort in the state's history, according to the release, preserving 101 square miles of forest, lakes and rivers in Florence, Forest and Marinette counties in northeast Wisconsin.
