Clear Lake Protected

In May, Tomahawk Mayor Clarann Stocker and North Central Conservancy Trust signed a conservation easement protecting 10.89 acres between Clear Lake and Half-Moon Lake in the Town of Bradley, Lincoln County. The conservation easement protects one of the last remaining undeveloped parcels on Clear Lake and provides natural and scenic space on the shores of Clear Lake and Half Moon Lake, which are otherwise extensively populated with cottages and homes.

The property was originally gifted to North Central Conservancy Trust with the condition that it be protected with a conservation easement upon sale. Limited development along lake shores, wetlands, and stream margins is especially important for protecting water quality and wildlife habitat.  NCCT places a high priority on easements that protect these critical habitats.  A gift such as this has many wonderful benefits.  In addition to securing lake shore for wildlife and aesthetics, the value of the property is a generous philanthropic donation with good tax benefits to the donors, and the proceeds from the sale will be used to support our efforts in protecting other properties.
