There could be some wiggle room on preserving portions of the state Stewardship Fund.
Mar 04, 2015
The Stewardship Program was authored in 1989 with the advice of former Govs. Nelson and Knowles with the bipartisan belief that there is an obligation to make sure future generations have the opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty, wildlife, biological diversity and outdoor recreation that make Wisconsin so special. Overwhelmingly, the good people of our state share that belief. With the governor's proposal to essentially kill the program, it appears he does not share this belief.

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail and the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program
Feb 19, 2015
he 1,200-mile trail is the state's only designated scenic trail and one of 11 national scenic trails, the only one completely in Wisconsin. The footpath follows the southern edge of the last glacier that plowed through the state, a route that travels from Door County south toward the Illinois border, west past Madison, north through the center of the state and west again to the Minnesota border at Interstate State Park in St. Croix Falls. No matter where you are in Wisconsin and no matter the season, you're never too far from a hike on the Ice Age Trail.
