Kanabec Prescribed Fire Management


The proposed prescribed burning project will restore and enhance approximately 1,000 acres of habitat within 15 separate sites. All sites are publically accessible state WMA lands and SWCD administered lands. This project will be supported widely because it meets the goals of many local and state organizations such as the Kanabec County Pheasants Forever chapter, the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association, Kanabec SWCD and DNR Wildlife, to improve degraded wildlife nesting and cover habitat for multiple species such as sharp-tail grouse, ring-necked pheasant, wild turkey and many other non-game species.
