2014 - Statewide Victory

Expanding the Aldo Leopold Legacy Trail System (SB 596)

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) manages the Aldo Leopold Legacy Trail System on behalf of all citizens. Wisconsinites currently utilize our state trail system for hiking, biking, and horse riding. This bill authorized the DNR to include water trails in this state trail system. Water trails can be used for recreational activities such as canoeing and boating and would be a highly valued asset by Wisconsin citizens and visitors. The bill was signed into law as Act 248 on April 9, 2014.
