Habitat Improvement Work At Jamies Pond Concludes For The Season, Grouse and Deer Habitat Improved
Habitat work at Jamies Pond began in August of 2016 and is now concluding for the season in anticipation of spring breakup. The Department has created 14 grouse blocks totaling approximately 18 acres, enhanced deer wintering area habitat, and performed a light selection harvest around mast bearing species such as red oak, American beech and apple trees to provide more growing space for their crowns. As of the end of the winter of 2017, work covering approximately 75% of the 800 upland acres at Jamies Pond has been accomplished.
