The Northwoods Land Trust (NWLT) added six acres to the Holmboe Conifer Forest in Rhinelander, expanding an already protected 32-acre property to a total of 38 acres of old growth forest. This hidden gem is a unique natural area and one of the land trust’s most visited properties.

“It’s our only urban preserve. It’s only 32 acres in size, but it’s an old growth preserve,” said NWLT Executive Director Ted Anchor. “It’s unusual to have old growth within the city limits.”
