Wildlife Coming Back to Southern Minnesota November 03, 2005 9:26 AM

One area nature center is about to see some big changes to its grounds.

 Workers are planting native grass seeds in what used to be farmland.

The 60-acre plot now belongs to Hormel Nature Center.

They're converting the land over to prairie and wetland.

Workers say that'll not only bring back native plant species, but it will provide new habitat for wildlife as well.

And even though it looks like a farm field, it won't be long before it looks like natural wildlands.

Bill Olson, landscape installer, tells KIMT NewsChannel Three, "It's nice to see the wildlife out there. . .deer and the turkeys. And pheasants have come back to southern Minnesota too."

 Olson adds that less farmland in Minnesota won't hurt food supplies and can only help the environment.
