Thanks to an anonymous donation, The White Pine Society saved 72 acres of white pines near Bemidji and donated the stand to the State as a Wildlife Management Area in which the pines will be protected. The stand is adjacent to an existing Wildlife Management Area and is surrounded by county land that will be managed like the 72 acres as far as pine cutting goes. The area will be a beautiful attraction to the region for walking in spring, summer, and winter, and hunting in fall. 


$150.00 Given in loving memory of Vic Reim by Stew and Mimi McMillen.
