Northern Bobwhites and Fire features Dr. James Martin from the University of Georgia.
In addition to discussing northern bobwhite management and the importance of prescribed fire, Dr. Martin highlights the USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) pine savanna program, which has the goal to restore pine savanna on 82,000 acres across seven states using forest thinning, prescribed fire, and native grass restoration. Technical and financial assistance is available to landowners who choose to pursue pine savanna management on that designated landscape.
