The primary practice at Hatchie Refuge is the manipulation of water in the 400 acres of wetland impoundments. Forest management practices are planned to increase the percentage of red oaks in the bottomland forest, provide mature trees for certain species and provide young trees for certain species requiring that type of habitat.
