Overview:
The Department of Natural Resources requires agricultural farming services for land located at Des Plaines State Fish & Wildlife Area (SFWA). Lease 2466 is located in Will County, Section 2, Township 32 North, Range 9 East, 3rd Principle Meridian. The acreage for farm lease is approximately 166.9 acres in 2014, 110.6 acres in 2015, and 62.5 acres in 2016.

Many Department of Natural Resources owned or managed lands contain tillable acreage. These lands have the potential to generate revenue if used to grow agricultural products. It is the Department’s policy to minimize the use of such lands for agricultural production in favor of establishing annual or permanent wildlife habitats. However, the Department also recognizes that certain agricultural practices and farm income can provide needed resources for wildlife habitat, improving habitat diversity, developing cover and edge effect, and maintaining annual vegetative stages.

A mandatory vendor conference shall be held January 16, 2014, 2:00 p.m. at Des Plaines S.F.W.A., 24621 North River Road, Wilmington IL 60481.
