The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) held a public hearing to receive public comments regarding allowing hunting and related uses and dogs under control at the Compass Prairie Scientific and Natural Area (SNA).
Scientific and Natural Areas are state lands established to preserve natural features and rare resources of exceptional scientific and educational value. The Compass Prairie SNA is open to the public for non-motorized activities such as hiking, bird-watching, nature photography, and snowshoeing.
The Compass Prairie SNA protects mesic prairie and a population of Compass Plant. Information on resources and location of Compass Prairie SNA can be found at here. Learn more about recreational uses and visiting SNAs.
