This project will restore a native forest by planting 12,000 longleaf pines and native hardwoods. Other areas would be extensively managed for native grasses critical to grassland birds. Bird species that would be positively impacted by this project include: prairie warbler, field sparrow, Eastern meadowlark, among others. Population trends of these grassland birds will be monitored in order to evaluate effectiveness of applied management practices.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
