Geocache Description:

First and only cache in a Tribal National Park!!


Stretching over ¼ mile along Lake Superior's shoreline on the Red Cliff Reservation, this incredible property includes pristine sandy beaches bordered by primordial boreal forest identified to be of Global Significance by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and provides views of the Apostle Islands Gaylord Nelson Wilderness Area including Oak, Basswood, Hermit, Raspberry and Stockton Islands.  Adjacent to the Frog Bay estuary and wild rice beds, the land is vital to the drainage emptying into Lake Superior’s Frog Bay.   Because this area has been historically important for the Red Cliff Tribe, but was inaccessible in recent history due to its private ownership, the Bayfield Regional Conservancy and the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa joined forces to acquire and permanently protect the property for nature based recreation, for traditional/spiritual ceremony and to further the understanding that all land is sacred. 

The Bayfield Regional Conservancy worked with David and Marjorie Johnson who purchased the land in the 1980’s to ensure its permanent protection with the Johnson’s donating half of the value of the land.  The remaining half came in the form of a Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency.
