NWTF habitat projects that are helping improve forest health in Utah!
The mission of the National Wild Turkey Federation is no less urgent today than when it was founded in 1973. What we do in the coming decades will be instrumental in not only enhancing wild turkey populations but also in the continuation of hunting and quality wildlife habitat for countless species.
NWTF habitat projects that are helping improve forest health in Utah.
Sawmill Point Stewardship project on the Escalante Ranger District of the Dixie National Forest.
This is a 900 acre aspen regeneration and stand improvement project. Aspen provides diversity and species richness for various wildlife species. It also provides important habitat for wild turkeys including foraging opportunities, a source of cover, and nesting and brood rearing habitat.
Sieler Stewardship project on the Dixie National Forest. This project was managed by the Mule Deer Foundation and the US Forest Service.
NWTF provided funding along with the Mule Deer Foundation, the US Forest Service, the Utah Watershed Restoration Initiative, and the Utah Habitat Council. The objectives of this project were to improve species composition and growth within ponderosa pine and mixed conifer stands as well to reduced hazardous fuels.
