Resource Management Responsibilities

The Natural Resource Manager position is responsible for enhancing and restoring our natural areas, throughout our woodlands, wetlands, and prairies. We work tirelessly to restore our parks back to what their original state would be; a pre-European view of the landscape. 

Our work can be seen throughout many of our parks, like the removal of invasive brush and trees in Sac and Fox Overlook to restore this area back to Savanna and prairie. Or in Ruby Wildlife Area, as we remove dense young stands of shade tolerant trees, to further promote Oak regeneration throughout an once oak dominant woodland.
