Quail Habitat, SW IA

dsc04011This project is a wonderful undertaking for HRF.   We are eliminating a large amount of invasive woody vegetation on ground that has fallen out of use.  Honey locust trees dominated the landscape.  These thorny trees are being eliminated and piled for later burning.  HRF will follow up that practice with several acres of edgefeathering to provide a soft transition zone for the quail between grassed and timbered areas.  The final steps will add acres into quail specific habitat grass and forbe mixtures and a regiment of prescribed burning.
