Marshall Wildlife Conservation Area
Many different habitats and an unbeatable view of a marsh make this property an excellent place to see a lot without having to go far.
A ¾ mile natural surface trail winds through the property to a small pier with a bench overlooking the marsh.
The uplands have been managed for paper birch and aspen, and will continue to be harvested to maintain young forest habitat. Some super-canopy white pines do tower over the forest and will hopefully serve as alternate nesting sites for bald eagles or osprey. The property is adjacent to Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest land as well as Lac du Flambeau tribal forest lands.
In September of 2016, the property was donated by Ed Marshall.
