Summary

The application of two management strategies were tested across nine, Class III, wetland catchments located at the Woodworth Study Area (Stutsman County, ND). This field study took place during 2014 and 2015. 2014 was a pre-treatment year and snow measurements were taken in all experimental catchments in the late February 2015, before treatments were applied. Temporary electric fences were installed surrounding each wetland catchment to exclude them from grazing that took place on the management unit in 2015. All the catchments had been managed in a similar manner since purchased by USFWS in 1964. The primary management strategy of the wetland catchments from 1964–2013 was non-use with occasional prescribed burning. Four of the catchments [...]

Purpose

These data were collected in an effort to measure the effect of grazing and burning on snow accumulation through a multi-year, multi-catchment, field experiment and incorporated observed effects of upland management on snow into a simulation modeling exercise.
