Winter brushwork before & after

During the winter months, our land stewardship staff tends to get a little restless. They itch to get back out on the land, working to conserve natural areas and tend Iowa’s wild places. A couple of weeks ago Ryan, Melanie and Tylar braved the cold and headed out to INHF’s Razor’s Prairie in Jasper County to do some brushwork. The before & after results were pretty amazing:


The team’s brushwork involved removing aggressive shrubs and invasive shade-tolerant trees that were crowding the prairie, taking away vital area and nutrients for the prairie to grow properly. Look for more field photos as the weather gets warmer!
