WEBINAR – Maintaining quail and grassland bird habitat in the agricultural landscape: CP33 – Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds

July 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Northern bobwhite quail and many other grassland bird species have experienced significant population declines over the last several decades. Loss of native grassland habitat is one of the primary causes of these declines. The CP33 – Habitat Buffers for Upland Birds is a Continuous Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) practice that provides nesting and brooding habitat for quail and other grassland birds on less productive cropland field margins. The CP33 buffer practice can help maintain important native grassland habitat within an agricultural landscape. This webinar will discuss the CP33 practice requirements, their importance on the landscape and how best to establish, manage and maintain the habitat quality for quail and grassland birds learn more here…
