Green Lake Acquisition

Summary

Calhoun County is seeking to purchase Green Lake, a 6,434.49 acre tract of land lying entirely in Calhoun County.  Approximately 5,420 acres of the tract is an open water lake, about 864 acres is ephemerally inundated lowlands and about 150 acres is wooded uplands/coastal prairie. Upon acquisition, this property would be set aside for conservation purposes and protected from commercial, industrial and residential development in perpetuity. One of the principal objectives would be to explore means to establish emergent vegetation (both as wildlife habitat and as a means of improving water quality) in Green Lake or, alternatively, seeking engineering solutions if feasible.
