OUR PROJECT OUT AT HAWKEYE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA!!!
In August of 2013, we got permission from the local DNR to start on some projects to redevolp the 300 acre dog training area. Our first project was to take the existing 20 x 20 foot pond, and develop to 3 acre technical pond.
We at EIHRA, got together with many experts such as Kevin Bailey, from prairie creek nursary, Tim Thomspon, the local DNR biologist, and heavy equipment operators, Wayne Andersen and Randy Blakey from the Cedar Rapids Street Department to set a design and plan.
As you look at the pond now, you can see that it has many technical levels, and have created a great habitiat for local wildlife.
