The NWTF contributes to many habitat enhancement projects across Mississippi. Recently, the NWTF, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks and the USDA Forest Service all contributed funds to projects on the Chickasawhay and Mason Creek wildlife management areas.
Funds paid for fertilizer and seed (a mixture of clovers, chufa, sorghum and sunflower) for approximately 110 acres of wildlife openings on both of the wildlife management areas.
“These wildlife openings will provide ideal habitat for turkeys to forage, nest and raise their young,” said Kacie Bauman, NWTF district biologist for Mississippi.
The NWTF provided $6,500 from its Super Fund with a total match of $13,000 from the USFS and the MDWFP.
