Hikers, campers, fishers, or those just looking for a place to get closer to nature, there's a new park opening soon where nature lovers can do all those things.

It's called Ottawa Sands, and Todd got the chance to get a sneak peek look at the property before it opens to the public in mid-October. The current official opening date is October 15.

The efforts to improve the Ottawa Sands property are a shining example of the types of wildlife conservation and management that will ensure the state's forests, waters and wildlife are protected and preserved for generations to come.
