9:30am - 3:30pm
Central Wisconsin Environmental Station, Amherst Junction, Wis.
Experience how timber management can be used to improve wildlife habitat while joining Mike Demchik, Ph.D., Scott Hygnstrom, Ph.D., and Matt Esser, WI-DNR Deer Biologist, on a guided tour of Bradley Creek and Minister Lake demonstration sites. While on the tour, you will partake in discussions and marking activities to increase your understanding of timber management for white-tailed deer habitat. By the end of the workshop, you will understand the habitat requirements of wildlife and how to create it. Habitat management for WTD benefits many other species with similar needs, such as ruffed grouse, woodcock, golden-winged warblers, and a variety of other edge-loving and early successional species.
