With animals nesting, DNR urging landowners to delay roadside mowing
Landowners along Minnesota roads and highways are being urged by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to delay mowing or otherwise disturbing vegetation until after Aug. 1.
"This is the critical nesting season for wildlife that thrives along Minnesota roads," said Carmelita Nelson, the DNR prairie habitat coordinator. "Unfortunately, we have already had reports of pheasant hens and nests being mowed over this spring."
