Our protected preserves are two beautiful pieces of property in the Des Plaines River Basin. Through generous funding from North America Wetlands Conservation Act and WI-DNR Nelson-Knowles Stewardship Fund these properties will remain open space and are available for public use.
This property is a 14.75 acre upland/wetland complex in Bristol. The preserve is located on the east frontage road of I-94 between Hwys C and 50. It is open to the public for recreation, such as hiking, canoeing, and birding. We welcome you to visit the property.
The Coker Property is a 9.5 acre parcel in Pleasant Prairie. The Des Plaines River runs through the property. The entire property is part of a large primary environmental corridor and contains hardwoods and wetlands. Acquisition of this property by K/RLT will save the hardwoods and help restore the Des Plaines shoreline. The preservation of this property will continue to provide potential habitat for Blanding’s Turtle and Waxleaf Meadowrue, a plant species of concern in Wisconsin. We welcome you to visit the property.
