LINEVILLE, IA - A southern Iowa restoration success is an example of once neglected land that has been restored to native ecosystems to the benefit of Bobwhite quail and wild turkeys.

The property and efforts to restore it will be the focus of a landowner workshop and field tour on Aug. 24. The workshop begins at 9 a.m. in the Lineville Community Center, in Lineville, and includes a free lunch. At 1 p.m., the field tour of management practices will take place on the John and Sharon Orvis property.

The property, 4 miles west of Lineville, will be a showcase for the use of prescribed fire, woodland thinning, chemical treatment, mechanical removal and other treatments to eliminate native and non-native invasive plants and replace them with the vegetative communities found in southern Iowa and northern Missouri.

Pre-registration is required by contacting Dave Whittlesey, National Wild Turkey Federation, at 641-342-2500 or 641-414-2165 or by email at [email protected].

The event is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Missouri Department of Conservation, Southern Iowa Oak Savanna Alliance, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Wild Turkey Federation.
