Upland Habitat Created in Hoosier National Forest

Posted Saturday May 27, 2017 by wf_admin

Wild turkey and other upland species in the Hoosier National Forest received new and improved brood habitat, thanks to Wildlife Forever and the U.S. Forest Service. Over 125 acres received edge maintenance, involving the cutting back of encroaching cedar and small trees. About 76 forest openings were maintained to remain open and provide habitat for wildlife species. Workers piled cut material to provide cover for species such as quail, rabbits, and passerine birds.
