Learn How to Manage Timber for Wildlife at Free Workshop


SHELBYVILLE, Ill. — Landowners can learn how to improve wildlife habitat on their property for free by attending the NWTF and Lake Shelbyville Forest Management Workshop Saturday, July 23, at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center in Shelbyville, Ill.

During the workshop, landowners and managers will spend time with wildlife biologists and foresters learning how to enhance their woodlands for wildlife.

Topics include:

  • conducting timber stand improvements

  • identifying and controlling exotic and invasive plants

  • touring a Lake Shelbyville timber stand improvement site and prescribed burning habitat project site

  • using a chainsaw safely

  • learning about U.S. Department of Agriculture and Illinois Department of Natural Resources cost share programs for forest landowners

The workshop is free and includes lunch. The program runs from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Participation is limited to the first 60 people registered. Pre-registration by July 16 is strongly encouraged.

NWTF, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Illinois Forestry Association are sponsoring this workshop; the Lake Shelbyville Office of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting.

Local sponsors include NWTF's Lake Shelbyville Strutters and Kaskaskia Longbeards chapters.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center is located off Hwy. 16 east of the Lake Shelbyville Dam.
