The National Wild Turkey Federation was awarded this State Wildlife Grant from North Dakota Game & Fish (NDGF) during the fall of 2008. Three primary objectives were identified in the proposal:
- Complete 180 acres of Russian olive removal/control on Western Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) to include 40 acres on Ochs and the balance on Trenton and Lewis &Clark WMAs.
- Improve habitat conditions on WMAs by creating openings for terrestrial wildlife species.
- Increase public awareness regarding the problems with Russian olive invasion in riparian systems and re-enforce the values of riparian areas to North Dakota’s wildlife, people and economy.
