Cedar Creek Conservation Area
The Cedar Creek Conservation Area, features a broad array of native landscapes including wetlands and emergent marshes, woodlands and over two miles of shoreline on the Rum River and Cedar Creek.
The site has commanding views of the landscape to the north and south from a high ridge that runs across the site. Eventually about 200 acres of agricultural croplands will be converted to native prairie to increase biological diversity and improve wildlife habitat.
Current public access to the Cedar Creek Conservation Area is located on the west side of County Road 9, just north of 184th Lane NW. Hours are 6 a.m. to 30 minutes past sunset. Activities are primarily limited to walking, fishing, hunting and native enjoyment.
The funding for the project was made possible through a $3.8 million grant from the new Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment and $400,000 from the Legislative Citizens Commission on Minnesota Resources. The land negotiations were facilitated by the Trust for Public Land – Minnesota Office.
