Area landowners might qualify for state aid

Landowners who want to improve wildlife habitat on their property could qualify for state help, especially if they’re interested in bobwhite quail and ring-neck pheasants.

Both are prized game birds, but their populations have suffered from permanent habitat loss or lack of maintenance on existing habitat, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said in a news release.

Through the program, a district wildlife biologist will meet with a landowner, inspect the property and prepare a management plan to restore wildlife habitat.
