The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public open house on Oct 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the scenic overlook of the Sunken Grove Wildlife Area, to discuss a proposed forest wildlife stewardship plan for the area. The forest wildlife stewardship plan is a guide for future management of the wildlife area which will focus on maintaining wildlife habitat, reducing invasive species along with promoting long-term sustainability of the forest resource at Sunken Grove.

This will be an informal open house where DNR representatives will be on hand from the Wildlife Bureau to answer questions and discuss future plans at Sunken Grove with the public.

The scenic overlook of the Sunken Grove Wildlife Area is located four miles northwest of the town of Fonda, on 110th Ave.
