Notice is hereby given that the Property was acquired through the Grant. The purpose for which the property was acquired from willing sellers was to provide permanent, high-quality habitat for resident grassland wildlife and migratory grassland birds. Over 60 hunter days per year will be added when this site is entered into the Free Upland Game Hunting Program. Management would include frequent disturbance (prescribed fire, strip disking, herbicide application, etc.) to maintain the early­ successional grassland habitat many birds require for nesting, foraging and rearing broods. Long-term management goals of the site will be to provide nesting, brood-rearing and winter cover for ring-­necked pheasant and other grassland birds, as well as vigilant control of invasive species.
