Iron Pool Savanna and Wetland Enhancement


The goal of this project is to restore or enhance both savanna and wetland habitat types to pre-European settlement conditions by controlling invasive species and increasing diversity through the use of conservation grazing. This project will create the infrastructure needed to enclose macrofauna to mimic the natural disturbances of the landscape to enhance and maintain these habitats.
