Wildlife Management Program
Restoring wildlife habitat is the focus of our wildlife management program. Much of our work occurs on private land with the cooperation of local landowners.

All 1,135 miles of secondary road ditches are under the management of our Roadside program.
This program is responsible for the eradication of noxious weeds, reestablishment of native prairie species where possible and the removal of brush where needed.
