Kutz prairie parcel restoration

Grassland habitat for pheasant, turkey, and duck nesting is disappearing in southern Minnesota, and currently can only be found in state Wildlife Management Areas, Conservation Reserve Program acreage, and native prairie remnants. Any addition to grassland habitat will increase hunting opportunities on public lands in close proximity to the worksite on Kutz prairie parcel, such as Swan Lake Wildlife Management Area, the premier duck-producing and migratory stopover lake open to hunting in this part of the state.

Volunteers will remove invasive brush and exotic species from one of the native prairie remnants in the Judson complex, reversing years of serious degradation and allowing beneficial grasses to flourish.
