The National Wildlife Turkey Federation is holding a fund raiser on Saturday, February 4th. Committee member Don Pfeiffer says this fundraiser is held for wild turkey conservation. He says the habitat of the wild turkey is mainly trees, but they will live around grasslands and weeded areas for food for their young.
Pfeiffer says turkeys were introduced back to Iowa in the 1970s and 1980s by the Department of Natural Resources and are in every county in Iowa. The cost for a membership to the Turkey Federation and dinner is $50.
The dinner and auction will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Washington. Reservations are due by the end of the month and to make a reservation, contact Don Pfeiffer.
