New Land Acquisitions

We are pleased to announce the acquisition of two important Conservation Lands — Silberhorn Conservation Area and Savannah Oaks Conservation Area!

These two new conservation areas have been established to help preserve important habitats and expand public opportunity for passive recreation.  Both sites are identified as critical and sensitive lands by the Boone and Winnebago County Regional Greenways Plan, the Boone County Comprehensive Plan, and the Boone County Conservation District’s (BCCD) Master Plan.    We use these resources to ensure our efforts with land acquisition are focused on implementing our mission and purpose.
