Wildlife Habitat Improvement Guide for Minnesota Youth.
This publication outlines projects to increase wildlife, primarily fowl and deer, and to help rural youth better understand wildlife requirements. The publication outlines six basic steps that are involved in initiating a wildlife project. These are: (1) Determine the types of wild animals for which the land is best suited; (2) Study the life requirements of species selected for management; (3) Prepare a habitat map; (4) Make a general inventory of that area's game species; (5) Determine which of the selected species' life requirements are lacking; (6) Design and implement projects that will improve the wildlife habitat and increase the number of wildlife. The publication devotes a section to each step: the sections include photographs, maps, diagrams, tables, background information, and suggested resource materials. Such topics as winter cover, winter food, nesting cover, wetland development projects, and area types are included. The final section provides a closer look at such projects as pheasant projects, sharptailed grouse-prairie chicken projects, water fowl projects, and deer and ruffed grouse projects. A recommended reading list is included. (TK)
