Refuge staff and volunteers planted approximately 2,425 hardwood seedlings on February 24-25, 2010 at Little River NWR.  The forest restoration project was identified as a National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Hunting Heritage Super Fund project.  The project involved planting a diversity of native hardwood seedlings (water oak, willow oak, white oak, Shumard oak, cherrybark oak, blackgum, red mulberry, green ash, black walnut, and sweetgum) to restore 8 acres back to bottomland hardwood forest.  The NWTF purchased the hardwood seedlings for the project.
