Green Corridor - Lamberton WMA Development
The entire area (80 acres) will be cropped with soybeans during the 2010 cropping year to provide good seed beds and to minimize risk of carry over effects from corn herbicides. HE Grant funds will be used to purchase high diversity mixes of native forb seed that will be purchased from private vendors with sources as close to the seeding site as possible via adherence to the DNR’s most current seed source sequencing guidelines. Two seed mixes will be used, one for dry soils (approximately 75 acres) and one for mesic soils (approximately 5 acres). The proposed seed mixes are attached. DNR will supply locally harvested prairie grass seed approved for use by the Area Wildlife Manager. Seeding will be done during the fall/winter of 2010/2011 by DNR Wildlife staff. Mowing to control weed competition will be accomplished by DNR Wildlife staff in the summer of 2011.
