Iowa Chapter Installs Hen Houses at Refuge
Posted on 04/24/2014
Members of the Aldo Leopold Chapter in Burlington, Iowa, spent a few hours in April placing new Hen Houses at the Allen Green State Refuge in northern Des Moines County. Mark Bell, 15, and three kids younger than 8 also assisted in the project.
The chapter, which held its inaugural banquet in September, used Waterfowl Heritage Funds raised during that event to begin improving local habitat and duck production. Members pledged funding and assistance to update a flow-control structure for the refuge impoundment, as well.
