"Every citizen is part-owner in local, county state and Federal lands, and should l>e Interested in their conservation use and treatment,' said Frank H. Mendell, State Conservationist of the U. S. Soil Conservation Service. "As the demand for space for recreation, hunting, and other activities continues to grow we must plan carefully for the conservation management of our lands, both public and private, to meet these needs/' Mr. Mendell said. Nearly a fourth of the land in the United States is pul>- lic owned. The Kossuth County Soil Conservation District along with 99 other Districts In the state are providing technical help in planning and applying wildlife conservation measures. These practices include provision for wildlife habitat and recreation.

PHILLIPS ST. 295-2841 WIND BREAKS- WILDLIFE AREAS There is a definite need for improved cover for wildlife in the District. The windbreaks in the District are one of the best a protected areas for pheasants, according to Lyle R. Riedinger. The SCS is working with farmers in planning areas around the windbreaks that will be a benefit to wildlife. As the new windbreak is planted plans call for the planting of at least one row of honeysuckle. Special attention is given to the planting of evergreens as these make ideal winter cover for the birds. WILDLIFE CONTROLS PESTS The conservation planned farm will furnish food and cover for locally important kinds of wildlife as well as providing good farm crop production. Farmers in the Kossuth County Soil Conservation District are showing increased interest in providing for the needs of wildlife on their farms. Songbirds, woodpeckers, night hawks, swallows and martins are insect pest controllers. Sparrows, finches, larks and other birds feed on weed seed and help to control insects. Foxsand owls aid In the control of rodent pests. Fox, Mink, skunk control rodents such as field mice, meadow mice, gophers and rats. Bull, fox and king snakes are used to control gophers. Game birds and animals are frequently mentioned as being the chief reason why the farmers should provide for wildlife on their land. However, Mr. Riedinger, points out that the real Important thing Is to provide for natural communities where many kinds of wildlife can live. Outdoor recreation, nature study, aesthetic values and improved natural biological balance all can be found on the farms where good planning for wildlife has been accomplished.
