Residents on Pigeon Lake near Drummond are carefully watching and worrying about the possible sale of the state-owned Pigeon Lake Field Station — and what a sale could mean to their neighborhood.

For six years, the unused 90-acre property, which includes 1,750 feet of lakeshore on the 200-acre lake, has been eyed for sale by the state. Now Tom German, the head of Wisconsin’s Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, says the state is taking preliminary steps that could lead to the sale of the property.

The Pigeon Lake facility includes about 30 structures. It has not been used since 2014, the last year the University of Wisconsin-River Falls operated environmental and arts programs on the site.
