85.23 COOPERATIVE LEASES OF AGRICULTURAL LANDS.
On any agricultural lands however acquired, located within a state park, where the use of
the lands would not conflict with normal park uses, cooperative farming leases on a sharecrop
basis may be completed with nearby farmers to provide needed park services such as grassland
restoration or development, weed control, and the provision of food plots, such as corn, for deer,
pheasants and other wildlife species that are indigenous to the habitats existing in state parks and
which are of value and interest to state park visitors and the general public.
The sharecropping leases may be entered into for state park lands in lieu of any rental
arrangement established for use with respect to state lands in any other provision of law.
