MN VETERANS WMA
2014 Clays for a Cause raised $4,197.19 towards the purchase and restoration of the 604-acre Minnesota Veterans State Wildlife Management Area. Located in Wright County near Clearwater, this property now consists of diverse, high-quality restored native prairie as well as a combination of mature oak woodland and riparian zones, with the Clearwater River running through. A beneficial habitat addition, this WMA is part of a habitat corridor that includes the neighboring 1,000-acre Succonix WMA, and stretches to include the Hoglund WMA and the river corridors. The Veterans State WMA was ceremoniously opened to the public during the Summer of 2014, which the Clays for a Cause Board was honored to attend.
