The Morris Wetland Management District, a local office of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, recently opened a driving trail for use seven days a week during daylight hours. Just three miles east of Morris, the three mile long driving trail is designed to demonstrate wildlife management techniques and also serves as a scenic wildlife observation tour. The trail has been open on limit- ed days for several years but the wet- lands office decided to experiment this summer with leaving the trail open seven days per week. Steve Delehanty, the manager of the wetlands office, says the trail will remain open as long as it doesn't cause problems or become a party spot. "People like a chance to observe wildlife and see what we do to man- age their public lands" said Delehanty. "As long as people respect the rules and enjoy it, we will try to keep it open during the summer." The driving trail has a gravel base but is not an improved road so Delehanty says "use some common sense". The trail should be fine during dry weath- er when driven at slow speeds. Anyone driving the trail should have a chance to see deer, waterfowl, and many other birds along with learning about wildlife management techniques. An interpretive leaflet describes management techniques such as wetland restoration, nesting boxes, grassland seeding, and more. Some of the management techniques can be applied by private landowners on their own farm or yard. Early morning and late evening are the best times to drive for those hoping to see wildlife. 00FREEm-mFREE00FREE BIG STONE BOWL_z00 00rtmatr,tutr 3t tm o ,:oo u. p.00a w 0, JLlrD FAMILIIB AND GU'JBBTB +,,,++ j11 llJl +,0 , <=A,_,_ For+ ,:.,=,-+...+..-,,o,..,.. o ,,,-,ow ,.,,= ++_+,,++..+ I[ I  O0)t O ,mPlD TRY  IT A It-NE.
