What We Do

Conservation tools used to maintain or enhance habitat on the district include water control structures, prescribed fire, planting of native prairie grasses and forbs and the use of mechanical equipment to enhance young forest habitat. The district also works with landowners to modify their operations with science based practices that improve wildlife habitat while also satisfying agricultural business needs.
