Sheboygan County along with its partner, the Glacial Lakes Conservancy (GLC), closed on the Amsterdam Dunes property today. The 333 acre purchase will establish a Wetland Mitigation Bank and Preservation Area. The property is located along Lake Michigan in the Town of Holland and is one of the few remaining undeveloped beach shorelines between Sheboygan and Chicago. The property contains a total of seven contiguous parcels and is comprised of rare sand dunes, forest and wetlands of various types, bluffs, farmland, streams and diverse plants and wildlife. There is 1,920 feet of frontage along Lake Michigan, and a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) Raptor Research Station is directly contiguous to the property.
