Part 3

Pat and I could not have done this by ourselves.  It is also about partnerships, shared visions, and dedication of conservation minded organizations.  specifically, the Hamilton County Conservation Board, Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, Hamilton County Pheasants Forever, The National Wild Turkey Federation, Eagle Grove and Little Wall Lake Chapters of White Tails Unlimited, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Habitat Stamp Fund.  The opportunity to “Give Back” wouldn’t have happened without their help, support and shared visions for the future of everyone.”

“Brandrup’s Timber” is 112 acres in size and is comprised of native timber, restored prairie grasses and wetland.  It is located 2 miles north of Webster City on White Fox Road and 1 mile west on 190th Street.  The area will be open for public use including hunting; large and upland game along with waterfowl, hiking, bird viewing and other outdoor recreational activities.  Directional signs along with area boundary signs and a parking lot will be installed in 2014.  A public dedication ceremony is also being planned for the near future.  For more information, contact Hamilton County Conservation at 515-832-9570 or visit
