Introduction:
The 360-acre proposed acquisition will consolidate lands into a contiguous unit containing
hiking trails, backpacking campsites and protect ecologically significant resources and scenic
vistas in the park.
Work Completed:
Acquired 360 acres within George Crosby Manitou State Park by June 30, 2008.
Public Access: This acquisition vvill provide the public access to an additional 360 acres on
the North Shore. The acquisition is a good addition to Crosby Manitou's unique opportunity
for primitive recreation in the MN State Park system1s one backpack only state park.
Coastal Habitat: The project will protect some of the states n10st significant old forest
communities. A report titled IINative Plant Communities and Rare Plants of George H.
Crosby Manitou State Park and Caribou Falls State Wayside'l Minnesota County Biological
Survey (MCBS) 2003 funded in part by a grant from Minnesota1s Lake Superior Coastal
Program ranks the old-growth sugar maple and white cedar-yellow birch forests in Sections
26 & 27 as likely the highest quality old-growth forest in the state of MilU1esota and one of
the largest contiguous pieces of old-growth. The rugged terrain in Sections 26 & 27 supports
a diverse mix of high quality sugar maple, aspen-birch, spruce fir communities as well as
wetlands including a graminoid poor (sedge) fen with several documented rare species.
Results:
May 15,2008: Receive grant approval
June 2, 2008: Request for state \varrant
June 18, 2008: Warranty Deed signed by Parks and Trails Council ofMN
June 23, 2008: Teresa presents warranty deed for recording in Two Harbors and paYlnent
made to Parks and Trails Council
Conclusions:
The DNR acquisition process can be lengthy, complex and completion can take up to a year.
Luckily, this acquisition was already through most of the internal process when the grant was
offered. There will be more opportunities to protect more lands within the CZM area for our
state park system. The timing can be a challenge, but the efforts I find worthwhile.

Dear Ms. Thews:
Thank you for the opportunity to review and comment on the above project. It has been reviewed
pursuant to the responsibilities given the State Historic Preservation Officer by the National
Historic Preservation Act of 1966 and the Procedures of the Advisory Council on Historic
Preservation (36CFR800), and to the responsibilities given the Minnesota Historical Society by the
Minnesota Historic Sites Act and the Minnesota Field Archaeology Act.
We believe that there is a good probability that unreported archaeological properties might be
present in the project area. Therefore, we recommend that a survey of the area be completed.
The survey must meet the requirements of the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Iden-
tification and Evaluation, and should include an evaluation of National Register eligibility for any
properties that are identified.
If the project area can be documented as previously disturbed or previously surveyed, we will
re-evaluate the need for survey. Previously disturbed areas are those where the naturally
occurring post-glacial soils and sediments have been recently removed. Any previous survey
work must meet contemporary standards. .
If you have any questions on our review of this project, please contact us at (651) 259-3455.
Sincerely,
b
