Habitat Improvements on the Tioughnioga Wildlife Management Area

The NWTF partnered with New York Department of Environmental Conservation, Bureau of Wildlife Upper Susquehanna Coalition/Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District and the New York State Chapter of the NWTF to convert a 40-acre forested area to a grassland on the Tioughnioga Wildlife Management Area in Erieville, New York.

NWTF’s contributions will help, in part, fund timber harvest, stump removal, area preparation, routine mowing and potential future prescribed fire.

The habitat management techniques used on the WMA will provide long-term results, benefitting grassland birds, including grasshopper sparrow, northern harrier, eastern meadowlark, as well as deer, birds of prey, and the wild turkey.
