WI DNR selling more of your land

I note that the DNR has thrown more or your acreage on the market - -  history, here and here - - so the agency, to further paper over this loss of public assets summons up the bureaucratic obfuscatory descriptor "Phase 3."

To read all about it you have to work your way through a long, not-user-friendly collection of sites and summaries of various municipalities' garage sale items, unwanted vehicles and seized property.

Here's the beginning link, and one example:

12c.jpg27.2 +/- Acre Parcel near Elk Mound, WI w/Trout Stream Easement
- Address: County Rd H, Elk Mound, WI 54739 
- Property Details: Creek 17-11 flows through this parcel and is a high quality, coldwater, Class I trout stream that contains healthy populations of brook and brown trout. It is an important coldwater tributary for Elk Creek, which has an exceptional trout fishery and a high amount of angler use. An easement requirement that extends 66 feet from each streambank and spans the entire length of the stream on this property will provide adequate protection for this important resource. The property has approximately 5,296 feet of two-bank frontage on a tributary of Elk Creek called Crk 17-11, a class one trout stream. Much of the property is wetland and not wooded. There is a possible encroachment of an agricultural field on the property to the southwest.
