The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources approved the purchase of a conservation easement on 7,090 acres of the Lyme Solon Springs Forest, which is part of Wisconsin’s Brule-St. Croix Legacy Forest.

The grant, announced by CEI Capital Management today, is the last phase of a 2009 New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) financing that protected 22,000 acres of forestland to support the outdoor recreation industry, including sporting camps and lodges and professional guiding.

The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board approved the largest land conservation purchase in Wisconsin history by voting 7-0 to proceed with the second phase of a 65,867 acre working forest conservation easement on Lyme St. Croix Forest Company lands.
