Sette Wildlife Area

Sette Wildlife Area

The Sette Wildlife Area is a 77-acre property located in northern St. Croix County. The property was purchased in 2003 as a part of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area and consists primarily of grassland habitat (74 acres) with a few small pothole wetland restorations (3 acres). The property is managed as part of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area, a landscape scale wetland and grassland restoration project.

The property is located approximately 2 miles north of New Richmond. Follow Highway 65 north out of New Richmond for 1 mile, then turn east on 200th Ave. for 1 mile, then turn north on 150th St. for approximately 1/2 mile. The property is located on the west side of 150th St.


The property is managed to provide opportunities for public hunting, trapping, wildlife observation and other nature-based outdoor recreation. Management objectives aim to maintain an open grassland community through prescribed fire, mechanical and chemical control of woody species and limited haying and grazing. Populations of invasive species are controlled or eliminated by cutting, pulling, burning, herbicide treatment and/or biocontrol.
