Turkey Habitat Restoration: Goodhue County


2 separate projects: Site 1. Our plan is to fence the area shown on the map with woven wire fence and contract with a vendor to graze the site with goats to eliminate current buckthorn the first year and in subsequent years to eliminate new buckthorn. CPL grant funding will be used to erect the fence. Hiring a contractor with goats will be paid for with other funds. Site 2. Site will be harvested in winter 2011-12. We intend to use RPM (root pruned method) swamp white oak as part of our regeneration plan for this site. These seedlings cost about $20.00 each delivered to Minnesota and our grant request is for funding to purchase this specialty stock. DNR will provide funding for traditional reforestation of the remainder of site. Our chapter will volunteer labor for the RPM.
