Project boundaries 

What are project boundaries?

Project boundaries are geographic lines that help define the state’s public lands acquisition and disposal strategy (land strategy). These boundaries contain a majority of state ownership, as well as privately owned lands that, should they ever become available for sale, would be a priority for the DNR to pursue acquiring.

The project boundaries are around state forests, game and wildlife areas, and parks and recreation areas. We also manage lands located outside of these project boundaries such as boating access sites, trails and DNR facilities such as fish hatcheries.
