Restoring Rare Habitats for Wildlife and Water Quality – Long-Term Habitat Management

By Practical Farmers of Iowa

Iowa once boasted an incredibly diverse landscape. In this three-part series, landowners Jeff and Nancy share their vision for their land and discuss the work they are doing on their property to restore rare and declining habitats, including fens, oxbows, beaver habitat, oak savanna and more.

Also hear about Jeff’s ongoing partnership with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and learn about financial and technical assistance opportunities from USFWS biologist Darrick Weissenfluh.

The finale of this 3-part series includes discussion of what comes after habitat restoration. Learn more about long-term habitat management as well as land protection strategies.
