In 2018, The Trust for Public Land’s addition of 18 acres to the Warsaw State Wildlife Management Area (WMA) provided much-needed public access to this WMA near Dennison in Goodhue County. The Trust for Public Land acquired the land and conveyed it to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in 2018.

Characterized primarily by native dry bed-rock prairie and oak savannah, the Warsaw WMA is managed chiefly as habitat for migratory waterfowl, deer, pheasants, and turkeys, offering excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation, including hunting, within an hour’s drive of the Twin Cities.

Funding for this project was provided by the Outdoor Heritage Fund as recommended by the Lessard- Sams Outdoor Heritage Council.
