Banks WMA Thermal Enhancement


There is a need for Winter Thermal cover and winter browse in Southwest MN. This project is to enhance the tree and shrub cover on the Banks WMA. The project we are proposing will add cover and mast trees as well as low shrubs. The utilization of tall trees and shrubs will greatly improve the cover and food supply to improve winter survival.
