The parcel, which includes a bald eagle nesting area, currently owned by Rachel Lang would be added to the state's Big Muskego Lake State Wildlife Area. Wisconsin's acquisition of of that Lang parcel would create the largest contiguous area of conservancy, at 350 acres, in Muskego, said Tom Zagar, conservation coordinator/city forester.
