Goodale Conservation Area


Goodale Conservation Area (GCA) is our most northwest property and provides wetland and bottomland forest along the Wapsipinicon River.  There is a pond located in the southwest portion of the area and the river may be accessed by canoe.  GCA is open for hunting and fishing.  It was purchased in 1958 from Bert Goodale and an additional 1.33 acres were purchased from Paul Geerts in 1966.
