About this project: 

The District’s Land Conservation Program manages a cluster of properties at the south end of Painter Marsh and the outlet of Painter Creek.  The District purchased these properties from willing sellers in order to: 

  • protect and restore priority upland and wetland habitats in the area
  • reduce the amount of pollution (erosion and manure-laden runoff) entering Painter Creek and its surrounding wetlands in this area
  • increase the amount forest, prairie, and savannah as a way of both improving habitat and eliminating runoff

The site includes seven properties for a total of 188 acres. See the attached map for more information.
