The Pinkerton Legacy of Land on Thunder Lake
Tad and Hannah Pinkerton left their legacy with the donation of approximately 66 acres of land on the southern end of Thunder Lake in Three Lakes in Oneida County. The property boasts over one mile of wild and rugged frontage. It is dominated by bogs and spruce and tamarack forest, protecting water quality and providing wildlife habitat.
This donation in October of 2022 builds on decades of conservation work on Thunder Lake. NWLT’s first ever conservation area is on the northeast side of Thunder Lake and is adjacent to the Thunder Lake State Wildlife Area.
