event_description: Join KY BHA and KDFWR on July 27 at Higginson-Henry WMA beginning at 9am Central Time for a workday to help improve wildlife habitat.A proposed project for KDFWR at this location involves bringing in a contractor to remove autumn olive from the understory on 100 acres to improve turkey brood rearing habitat, truly a benefit to all game species across the board. As a part of a KDFWR grant proposal for this project, BHA will be volunteering with a hack & squirt project as part of the site preparation.We will have a group of volunteers hack and squirt undesirable from around the proposed autumn olive treatment acreage. The main goal of this project is to create pockets of brood rearing habitat (forb dominated understory rather than saplings) interspersed with woodland type tree densities throughout the forest. Looking forward into the future, this location has been selected because KDFWR will be able to run prescribed fire through it and continue on with the 3-4 year disturbance interval needed for healthy forests.After spending the morning at the WMA, we plan to drive to nearby Henderson Brewing Company for post-workday fellowship, food, and beverages.RSVP below so we can plan on your attendance, and we hope you can join us!
