Abstract

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is the state government agency whose vision is to lead Iowans in caring for their natural resources. Conservation and enhancement of natural resources to ensure a legacy for future generations is part of the DNR’s mission. Within the DNR, the Wildlife Bureau manages more than 380,000 acres of land as wildlife management areas (WMAs) for a variety of public users. Many of these WMAs are partially or mostly forest covered. These forests, if properly managed, provide a unique opportunity for the DNR to carry out its mission by publicly demonstrating sustainable forest management and the enhancement of these valuable resources for wildlife.
