Come out and learn more about QDMA and what we do for deer and deer hunters. We will also have information on the latest CWD findings in the state, as well as on the topics of habitat and deer management. We will have representatives from the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission on hand to answer questions. This is a great opportunity to meet other hunters in the area and learn more about how you can manage your property or lease for deer and other wildlife.
We are very excited to be hosting Ben Williams of Ol’ Tin Cup Habitat Restoration and Enhancements for the day. Ben will be leading the group in various demonstrations of habitat management techniques and examples. The event will be largely based on timber management; including hard and soft mast management techniques. We will also be speaking on different food plot techniques and ideas, and will have a few typical implements onsite for discussion and review.
We will have a vendor for Grandpa Ray Outdoors onsite for the day offering a discount on food plot seed purchases. You must be in attendance to receive the discount offer.
Pre-registration is required. As we are a brand new Branch in the area, we would appreciate your attendance considerably. For future educational events such as this, we intend on making the attendance free for QDMA members.
Free Wildlife and Pollinator Habitat Workshops for Landowners
Tuesday, April 17, the Barry Conservation District, along with Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Barry County QDMA Branch, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Pierce Cedar Creek Institute will host a free workshop at the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute located at 701 W Cloverdale Rd, Hastings, MI 49058
The workshop is intended to provide interested landowners the programs and tools available to help create quality wildlife habitat.
Anyone looking to attract deer, songbirds, pheasants and pollinators like butterflies onto their property, while improving air, water and soil quality, are invited to attend this free workshop.
Partners include the Barry Conservation District (BCD), the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), Pheasants Forever (PF), the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Michigan Pheasant Restoration Initiative (MPRI).
Grassland habitats provide significant value to wildlife and to Michigan citizens. They filter water, collect carbon to help clean the air and hold down soil to prevent erosion. They also provide homes and food for a variety of wildlife, including deer, songbirds, butterflies, turkeys, pheasants and insects like bees and butterflies that help pollinate important agricultural crops.
At 6:45, there will be snacks, coffee and a meet-and-greet before the event officially starts at 7:00pm.
