Byron Walker Habitat Tour • Kingman County

Friday, Jul 6th, 2012 @ 8am
8685 W. Highway 54 • Cunningham, KS • Map

Pheasants Forever is hosting a habitat tour focusing on habitat diversity and the importance of native wildflowers and pollinator insects to raising successful broods of pheasants and quail. The tour will last approximately three hours. In the morning, we will start with a few short presentations covering the importance of vegetative diversity and wildflowers in grasslands for successful game bird populations, ways to improve bird habitat in CRP, grassland management techniques that are being employed on the Wildlife Area to promote diversity, and common pollinator insects that can be found in the area. Following the presentations, we will stop at two sites on the Wildlife Area for short nature walks to see first-hand how the grasslands have responded to the management employed by Wildlife Area staff, as well as giving participants the opportunity to see and learn about native wildflowers and pollinator insects.
If you are interested in attending or would like more information on the tour, please contact the local Pheasants Forever Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist, Zac Eddy, at (620)338-7132 or zeddy@pheasantsforever.org.
