Ramsey Mill Pond WMA Improvement


Ramsey Mill Pond Wildlife Management Area was acquired in 2010, for the purpose of habitat restoration, water quality protection of the Cedar River and public recreational access. The site has been seeded to native prairie componant of grassess and forbs. The initial phase of grass establishment has been completed. The site now needs burn treatment to stimulate native plant growth and set back non native, intrusive plants which have become established in the early phases of restoration. The site was previously managed as ag land. There is a considerable amount of land which has non desirable, woody vegetation growing along the immediate riparian area along the Cedar River. It is our intention to work with DNR staff to eradicate non desired woody vegetation, treat those areas and promote a setting of native riparian plant communities.
