Cropland Management Plan: Camas National Wildlife Refuge

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Refuge objectives that relate to cropland management include production of Canada geese, Sandhill cranes and waterfowl; maintenance of Canada geese, Sandhill cranes and waterfowl; wildlife observation; and photography. Production and maintenance objectives for Canada geese , sandhill cranes and waterfowl are partially met by the cropland program. The alfalfa and improved grass meadows are characterized by short cover which provide foraging and loafing areas for geese and cranes. The short cover allows geese and cranes to detect approaching predators at a safe distance . The short grass and forb cover puts out new shoots which are high in protein and are preferred food of Canada geese while the cereal grain are high in carbohydrates which meet the high energy demands of waterfowl, particularly during migration.
The Refuge cropland provides a consistent feeding area from year to year within the Refuge that helps to build flock fidelity to the area which in turn leads to increased use of available nesting habitat on the Refuge. The cropland allows the birds to feed undisturbed which reduces metabolic energy consumption which helps ensure better body condition for the nesting/ breeding season both on the Refuge and on breeding grounds further north. The cereal grains also provide the high energy food needed for the southward migration and to ensure good body condition on wintering areas.
