A "magical place" of pristine forestland south of Kabekona Lake, with an estimated value of $1 million, will be sold to the Minnesota Trust for Public Land for scientific research and aquatic management.

The 440-acre tract will eventually be resold to the Department of Natural Resources as its steward in perpetuity. The initial sale is expected to close at the end of this month.
