John Pohlman
John Pohlman has worked for the DNR since 1992. He started out evaluating potential impacts from a range of development projects on rare species and their habitats. Later, he helped lead the assessment of the places in Wisconsin that Department staff and the public thought were the most critical to meet conservation and recreation needs for the next 50 years (the outcome of which is known as the Land Legacy Report). More recently, he has been involved with developing management plans for DNR properties throughout the state. He started working on the master plan for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area in 2013.
John has an undergraduate degree from Grinnell College and a Masters Degree from the UW-Madison Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies.

"We wanted a process that could help people envision their conservation future," notes DNR biologist and project manager John Pohlman."We wanted to inventory the land and gather the expertise of a wide variety of people who know this state as farmers, biologists, community planners, outdoor enthusiasts, professional land managers and family caretakers.
"The public and DNR staff repeatedly noted land use trends that concerned them," Pohlman continued, "pressures brought on by growing numbers of people and changing development patterns.Land uses change when family farms and woodlots are developed for homes, industrial forests are sold and divided, and our developed infrastructure spreads farther and farther into our rural countryside."As noted in the Foreword, "We need to build houses, roads, schools, industrial structures, commercial districts, and the many other facilities that support our growing population and expanding economy.But we must ensure that our developed infrastructure does not impair either our environment or our farm, forest, recreation, and tourism industries."Given the rapid changes confronting the state, it makes sense to consider what lands should be protected.
"We were directed to take a fresh look at land protection needs to revitalize a tool that helped guide public policy more than 50 years ago," Pohlman explained.
The maps of the different regions of the state also provide approximate locations of the Legacy Places, Pohlman said."We wanted to focus our attention at the "big picture" perspective to highlight the general areas harboring high-quality grasslands, forests, wetlands and waters, as well as places to hike, watch birds, canoe, ride horses, fish and hunt," Pohlman explained.

"There are not many places we could pull this off ... but this is clearly one of them," said John Pohlman, DNR land management specialist.
Success depends on a combination of public land management decisions in conjunction with private agriculture practices that will protect grasslands.
"The prairie chicken population has continued to slide," Pohlman said."This is the last area in the state in which they are present.
"Our intent is to try to protect the habitat, whether that means buying land outright or obtaining an easement ... whatever the landowner agrees to."A continued agricultural presence is important, "because without adjacent farmland, the grasslands wouldn't be nearly as productive" for prairie chickens, Pohlman said.
Set-aside programs, where a farmer retains ownership and receives state or federal payments to remove land from agricultural production is a landowner option the DNR supports.Examples include the Conservation Reserve Program, Wetland Reserve Program and Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program.
Pohlman said that to maintain grassland habitat in prime condition, some properties purchased by the DNR might be plowed and seeded with corn or hay for several years after which the land might return to grasses for about 10 years before crops would be rotated through again.
Other wildlife expected to benefit from the restored grasslands, according to Pohlman, include the Henslow's sparrow, short-eared owl, eastern and western meadowlarks, bobolink and grasshopper sparrow.

Mr. Pohlman was the Team Leader of the group that developed the Land Legacy Report, which has given the Department a 50 year vision for protecting 229 very special places and landscapes in Wisconsin. The Glacial Heritage Area is one of these places and also one of the first to have an implementation plan developed for it. The development of the Glacial Heritage Area Plan was also completed under Mr. Pohlman's leadership.
