On December 20th, in partnership with the Town of Dunn, we permanently protected an 80-acre farm on the north shore of Hook Lake – a beautiful State Natural Area. The farm was protected with a permanent conservation easement that ensures the agricultural land remains available for farming and the area on the shoreline of the lake remains natural and undeveloped.

This is our 22nd land protection project in partnership with the Town of Dunn. Together since 1997, we have permanently protected over 2,700 acres of important agricultural and natural lands in the town.
Funding for this project came from DATCP’s Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easements program, the USDA’s Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program, and the members of Groundswell.
