The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has announced a public meeting to discuss the removal of invasive trees and shrubs from the Bassway Strip Wildlife Management Area near Kearney.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on July 29 at Yanney Heritage Park's Environmental Resource Center Building in Kearney. 

Discussion will focus on removal of invasive eastern red cedar trees and grey dogwood, an invasive shrub. Meeting organizers say the removal would benefit bobwhite quail, deer, turkey and other wildlife species.
