Fox Forest Wildlife Area

foxf1This 531 acre wildlife area is one of the largest natural resource areas in Poweshiek County.  It is located just south of Diamond Lake. This very diverse area contains oak-hickory timber, native and reconstructed prairies, wetlands, and several miles of hiking trails.  Eastern wild turkeys were stocked in 1985 and have reproduced successfully over the last 20 years.  The Conservation Board used funds from a Wildlife Habitat Stamp Grant to acquire this truly wild area.  Click here for map location: North  –  South.
