In partnership with Ameren Missouri, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has created a new program to preserve and enhance wildlife habitat on land underneath Ameren transmission lines. Called Wires Over Wildlife (WOW), the new program encourages property owners to manage land for wildlife habitat where Ameren easements are located under transmission lines. MDC staff will provide technical counsel and Ameren will reimburse property owners to help reduce costs of land maintenance. Habitat work will focus on restoration of natural wildlife communities that occur, or could be established, under power lines on transmission easements. The program is scheduled to begin this spring. Property owners whose land may be eligible for the program should contact their local MDC office or Private Lands Conservationist for more information. In our area the local contact is Resource Forester Mike Fiaoni at the Salem Forestry Office. Call 729-3182 for more information.
