Northwood Alliance actively advocated for USFS Ottawa National Forest acquisitions in the Sturgeon River Gorge and the Prickett Flowage as a supporting partner for the Trust for Public Land. Significant acreage was added to the Ottawa at these two locations, highlighting the value of the Land and Water Conservation Fund to our collective efforts in conserving important lands in the region. The proximity of the North Country National Scenic Trail to these projects demonstrates the importance of these efforts. We highly encourage you to visit the Sturgeon Gorge Wilderness, Silver Mountain, Prickett and segments of the NCT in southern Houghton County. You will not regret experience.
