Nature center seeks land in Troy
The Carpenter Nature Center has applied for a 50 percent matching grant from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program to purchase 10 acres of land in the town of Troy in St. Croix County.
Carpenter Nature Center will provide the match to the grant award. The 10-acre parcel is an old farm completely surrounded by nature center property. Most of the property will be restored to native prairie, blending with the prairie habitat that surrounds it.
