Kummer Restoration


The Kummer parcel of the Vermillion River Aquatic Management Area was purchased by MN DNR in 2009 to provide fishing access for trout anglers, as well as secondary uses such as upland hunting. In 2010 Dakota Ringnecks Chapter of Pheasants Forever paid for planting of 26 acres of farm fields on the parcel into native prairie, but one 22-acre field remains in row crops. We are requesting funding to seed prairie vegetation on this remaining field and control weeds during establishment. Grassland bird species such as pheasant, bobolink, and dickcissel will benefit from the restoration, as will water quality in the nearby Vermillion River. The parcel is open to public hunting.
