Woodbury Core Forest Wildlife Habitat Restoration


The Woodbury Core Habitat Ecological Restoration Project seeks to restore quality oak woodland/forest habitat at three city-owned open space sites. Goals of the project are to reduce nonnative plant cover and increase habitat quality for game and nongame species. Methods include: invasive brush mowing and hand cutting; native seeding of woodland, wetland, oak opening, and crop ground areas; and prescribed fire. The project will also be important for improving the buffering capacity of upland areas surrounding La Lake and its fishery, as well as multiple forested wetlands at all three project sites.
