Savanna and Open Woodland Restoration in Northeast Missouri and Southeast Iowa Missouri Bird Conservation Initiative

Project Description

This project will increase plant species diversity in treatment areas by restoring open woodlands and savannas, expanding the availability of native grasses, forbs, and shrub type habitats on private lands within the focus area. This will be achieved by providing cost share money to private landowners to implement a variety of practices conducive to creating grass/shrub habitats including: woody cover control (WCC or removal of advanced woody invasion of open woodland and savanna habitats), prescribed burning, timber stand improvement (TSI or the removal of smaller noncommercial trees with...
