Abstract

Areas seeded with a mixture of native grasses and forbs (flowers) provide excellent wildlife habitat. Wildlife managers use native plants to provide nesting, feeding, loafing, and escape habitat for turkey, quail, pheasant, rabbit, and many songbirds. The benefits of native plants are many, but establishing and maintaining such a stand takes planning and care. When properly established and maintained restored prairies add beauty and wildlife habitat to any farm.
