Northwest Lowlands Regional Master Plan

The Northwest Lowlands ecological landscape is primarily in Douglas County but also intersects small portions of Burnett and Polk counties. DNR properties are limited in this region. Several small state habitat areas and state public access sites offer access to hunting, fishing, trapping and other traditional outdoor recreation.


Regional Master Plan

The Northwest Lowlands Regional Master Plan was approved by the Natural Resources Board in February 2019. The full document, appendix and maps are in the folders below. All properties included in this planning region are listed in Appendix A. The map below shows many of the larger, more popular DNR properties in the Northwest Lowlands. To view all properties in the region, use the Property Planning Viewer
