Game Commission Improves Access To SGL 211 In Dauphin County PA
Harrisburg, PA – -(AmmoLand.com)-The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today approved a purchase of two easements across State Game Land 211 in Rush Township, Dauphin County, to enable the agency to improve its wildlife habitat management efforts on this important area just outside of Harrisburg. The purchase price is $13,000, and will be paid to the Harrisburg Authority from the Game Fund.
“Acquiring these two easements will enable the Game Commission’s Food and Cover Crews, foresters and Wildlife Conservation Officers to enter portions of SGL 211 off Route 325 in Clarks Valley that currently are inaccessible because of the physical terrain and lack of legal access,” said Doug Killough, Game Commission Southeast Region director.
“These access corridors will be available for hunters and trappers seeking access to these portions of SGL 211, as well.”
The first easement, which is about 2,000-feet long by 50 feet wide, amounts to about 2.3 acres. The second easement, which is about 2,600-feet long by 50 feet wide, amounts to about three acres.
SGL 211 presently consists of 44,432 acres in Dauphin, Lebanon and Schuylkill counties, and is the third largest SGL in the Commonwealth.
