In 2016 the Clark County Forestry and Parks Department and The Black River Country NWTF Chapter teamed up to create five wildlife openings totaling 8 acres in the Clark County Forest. “Wildlife openings in a heavily forested landscape are critical for turkey brood-rearing habitat,” according to Rick Horton, NWTF District Biologist. “Young turkeys eat mostly insects in summer as their rapid growth requires a lot of protein. Openings with a lot of different kinds of flowering plants offer many different insects for the young birds”. The project used $1,200 of NWTF Super Fund and was matched with $6,333 from the County, so every NWTF dollar was matched with over $5 in outside funding!

Bluff Country Long Spurs have been hosting this Landowner Appreciation Day event for over 27 years, great job to the entire committee!
