A nonprofit group dedicated to preserving natural resources in northwest Wisconsin has purchased 600 acres of land adjacent to Copper Falls State Park that it intends to open to anglers, hunters, hikers and other outdoors enthusiasts.

The Landmark Conservancy announced Wednesday the purchase on the east side of Copper Falls. It bought the land for $725,650 from a family that had owned it since the early 1990s, according to Kristin Thompson, one of the conservation group’s directors.
