MSGS - Kettle Lake


This project area on State WMA and Forest Lands (under agreement with DNR Forestry) has a long history of wetland and brushland management to maintain an open landscape to benefit waterfowl, sharp-tailed grouse and other openland species. This project treats several areas of brush, trees and bog conifers that have not been successfully controlled by prescribed fire, including areas around an active sharp-tailed grouse lek. Approximately 73 acres will be mechanically treated, with 22 acres to be mowed and 51 acres to be sheared.
