NWTF Logo The Kansas State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) recently approved a 2008 Hunting Heritage Super Fund project at Clinton Lake. The Kansas Dept. of Wildlife& Parks will use the $4,600 award to create woodland openings and restore grassland at Clinton Wildlife Area.Management of native grassland is very important on the Clinton Wildlife Area. Clinton has over 200 acres of historical native prairie, most all of the non-native cool season grasslands have been converted to warm season native grasses and wildflowers.

Primary species hunted on the area include deer, turkey, waterfowl, mourning dove, bobwhite quail, squirrel, and rabbit. Also, a wide array of non-game birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians can be found on the area or migrating through. Trapping, fishing, and wildlife viewing are also popular past times on the area.

The Hunting Heritage Super Fund was established in 1983 to support the NWTF’s conservation and education programs. The program pools money raised at banquets, or donated by individual or corporate sponsors.
