Bateman Estate Purchase, Mackinaw River Project

Spread the love

In 1996, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) purchased 663 acres of the William Bateman Estate. The acres purchased included 1 ¾ mile of Macinaw River frontage, river bottomland prone to flooding, timber and rolling farmland. The River Project wanted TNC’s use of the land to positively impact water quality, preserve the forest and prairie, stabilize the river banks, restore the flood plan, and reduce erosion.
