More Upland Habitat in the Camden Area

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Your donations were used to increase access for upland bird hunting and improved habitat for quail, pheasant and wild turkey. When the Woodland Trails Wildlife Area was first acquired by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, very little wildlife existed on the 200-acre protected area. Formerly prairie, the site had been invaded by nonnative grasses, unsuitable for food or nesting cover. This project used herbicides to kill the nonnative grasses in the fall. A second round of herbicide spraying was done the following spring. Once the herbicides had done their job, the entire 200 acres were planted with warm season prairie grasses and forbs. If you live in the Camden, Ohio area or are just passing through, take a “time out for wildlife” and see the work you made possible at the Woodland Trails Wildlife Area.
