Presentation Title: Prairie restoration on the Randall Waterfowl Production Area

Description: When the Randall WPA was purchased a little over a decade ago the prairie was badly infested with dense stands of mature sumac, cedar trees, Siberian elm and other woody invaders.  Management practices including cutting with chainsaws, skid steer sheering and carbide cutting, cut stump and basal bark herbicide application, mowing twice a year for three consecutive years, prescribed fire during the summer, and rotational grazing where employed as well as annual hand pulling of spotted knapweed.  The WPA now serves as a facility for drying, cleaning, and storing of native ecotype seeds as well as a seed collection site.
