Hidden Falls Bluffland Enhancement


Description


This program will enhance and manage approximately thirty acres of mesic oak forest bluffland habitat, inclusive of ten acres of Southern Dry Sandstone Cliff (CTs12a), along the Mississippi River bluff within Hidden Falls Regional Park. Enhancement of these native plant communities will be accomplished through invasive species management and reforestation efforts focused within accessible areas of the Mississippi River bluff. This project will focus on areas surrounding the imperiled (S2 conservation status rank) native cliff plant community. The primary activities will involve controlling invasive species, improving tree canopy diversity, increasing connectedness of high-quality forests, increasing the probability of a self-sustaining forest community, reducing sedimentation of impaired water bodies and improving habitat for fish and wildlife.
