Ringneck Ridge Wildlife Area


Ringneck Ridge is a Dubuque County Conservation Board wildlife area open to PUBLIC HUNTING during state designated hunting seasons. In addition to hunting, the 160 acre area is also open to hikers and bird watchers. Some rare bird species call this area their home. The area was originally acquired by Dubuqueland Pheasants Forever through the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. To insure long-term maintenance and development, the Dubuque County Conservation Board was able to purchase the property in 2005 with the help of an Iowa Habitat Stamp Grant. Much of the work to restore the area's prairies and trees was completed by the Pheasants Forever chapter. In 2009, a project will be initiated to restore the pond at the back of the property to improve its use by waterfowl and provide fishing access. Only foot traffic is allowed on the property. Motorized vehicles may only by taken down the lane to the parking area. For additional information call 563.556.6745.
