The Department of Natural Resources requires agricultural farming services for land located at Sam Dale Lake State Fish & Wildlife Area for Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) agricultural purposes. Lease 2468 is located in Wayne County, Sections 12 & 13,Township 2 South, Range 6 East, 3rd Principle Meridian. The acreage for farm lease is approximately 101.8 acres in 2014, in 2015, in 2016 and in 2017.
Many Department of Natural Resources owned or managed lands contain tillable acreage. These lands have the potential to generate revenue if used to grow agricultural products. It is the Department’s policy to minimize the use of such lands for agricultural production in favor of establishing annual or permanent wildlife habitats. However, the Department also recognizes that certain agricultural practices and farm income can provide needed resources for wildlife habitat, improving habitat diversity, developing cover and edge effect, and maintaining annual vegetative stages.
