Resource Management

Resource Management

The district works in partnership with many landowners, agencies and conservation organizations to restore and protect prairie, wetlands and oak savanna. This work includes habitat restoration and the promotion of programs to improve water quality in the St. Croix River Watershed.

Other resource management tools used by the district include: grazing to stimulate the growth of grasses and forbs while setting back the growth of invading trees; controlling invasive species with chemical treatments; burning more than 1,000 acres per year to maintain grassland; and mowing to maintain grassland. The district also works with private landowners to restore habitat through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program (Partners). The Partners program works with private landowners to cost share restoration of important wetland and grassland habitat in the district.
