INHF is partnering with Benton County Conservation Board (BCCB) to purchase 184 acres of land adjacent to Wildcat Bluff Recreation Area, which is owned and stewarded by BCCB.
Wildcat Bluff, bordering the Cedar River, is a popular park that includes a renowned frisbee golf course, camping, hiking, fishing and other outdoor recreation opportunities. This addition would more than double the size of this well-liked park, providing even more ways to get outside and protecting sensitive Cedar River floodplain.
The 184-acre addition includes the land surrounding the current entrance road to the park. It consists of a variety of habitat types including upland oak and hickory and riparian forests, minimal cropland and some pasture with signs of native prairie species. The addition will provide a scenic entrance to the park, protect another scenic bluff and expand on wildlife habitat.
