DREW PLANTATION, Maine — Biologists are offering a free “habitat seminar” to teach about land use practices and their effect on wildlife in an eastern Maine site.
A Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife biologist, National Wild Turkey Federation biologist and state forester were holding the session Saturday on the Page Farm Unit of the Mattawamkeag River System. Participants were asked to bring water and dress appropriately for seasonal weather conditions.
The Page Farm Unit of the Mattawamkeag River System has been the site of recent efforts to restore young forest habitat on public recreation areas.
Those efforts help white-tailed deer, ruffed grouse, American woodcock and wild turkey to maintain healthy population levels, overwinter and have young in the spring.
