Minnesota's huge forest conservation deal closes today
Minnesota's single largest land conservation deal ever will be signed and sealed today as the state buys conservation easements on 187,277 acres of forest owned by Finnish paper giant UPM.
A combination of state money and private conservation funds will buy permanent protection for the land, in various tracts, mostly in Itasca County, along the infant miles of the Mississippi River.
