The Pilgrim River Watershed Project aims to ensure that the land is sustainably managed to protect healthy water quality and habitats, and to secure permanent public access for a variety of recreational uses that are compatible with forestry and natural resource protection.  A component of the project involves the purchase of conservation easements from a private landowner to accomplish the project goals.  The project is led by KLT and the Copper Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and includes many other local partners.  For more information visit www.pilgrimriverwatershed.org.
