BAXTER — Monday’s announcement of the closing of an $11 million deal to conserve nearly 2,000 acres of land along the Mississippi River, was billed as Celebration No. 1.

Conservation advocates said Celebration No. 2 is tentatively planned for next summer in the undeveloped area northeast of Brainerd that will now be preserved for future generations for a variety of outdoor recreational uses.
