Refuge aims to protect rare prairies, oak savannas
RINGWOOD, Ill. (AP) — Nature lovers have a new place to enjoy the outdoors.
The 11,200-acre Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois' McHenry County and Wisconsin's Walworth County includes tallgrass prairies, oak savannas and wetlands. It's also home to threatened animals and plants.
The U.S. Department of Interior approved the Hackmatack in August. It became official in November, when the Fish and Wildlife Service acquired its first easement.
