HFAD: Iowa Upland Habitat Renewal Project

The Hull State Game Management Area is a former strip mine that has been reclaimed. A new management plan is underway for the 568-acre property, which has suffered in recent years to invasive species such as Autumn olive and honeysuckle. The goal is to address some of the shortcomings of the area, which is open to hunting, and develop it into a prime area for upland game birds such as bobwhite quail and ringneck pheasant.

Volunteers will take part in the cutting and spraying of undesirable brush, removal of perch trees in glassland areas, building brush piles, and shrub and tree planting. There will be an opportunity to learn good habitat improvement techniques, including native-grass planting, that can be practiced on either public or private land.
