The "Habitat How-To" documents below cover some of the more common habitat management practices when developing an overall farm plan. These publications were designed to give the reader a good understanding of why, where and how to implement each of the practices covered. On the last page of each document is a "Summary of Options" section, which gives a general overview of options to consider for each practice. There is also a list of "Related Habitat How-To References", which lists other management practices that are often associated with the maintenance of or enhancement of the management practice in question.
Each of the management practices described will benefit wildlife to some degree, but having the right combination of practices in the right location is the key to having a complete wildlife management plan. Please take time to read over the Habitat How-To's that interest you and then contact one of our Private lands biologists to help in developing an overall wildlife management plan for your property.
