WINDSOR: ACQ-Token Creek Acquisition

Purpose

The goal of this project is to acquire the stream corridor, spring discharge areas, and riparian lands which have been flooded since the stream was dammed in 1850. This purchase (approximately 49 acres) will give resource managers the opportunity to greatly improve the water quality of Token Creek (the largest single contributor of baseflow to Lake Mendota) and to re-establish Token Creek as one of Southern Wisconsin's premier cold water resources.
