Concentrating on restoring wild quail habitat and wild quail populations and funding research focused on habitat development, nesting cover, brood-rearing and various quail population restoration activities.
The Alabama Wildlife Federation received a grant through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation / Southern Company Power of Flight grant program to develop a native warm season grass demonstration project in support of the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative. The project is designed to address barriers to native warm season grass establishment and management – practices critical for restoring bobwhite populations. AWF will develop 100 acres of native warm season grasses in 10 demonstration sites located in the “High Priority” areas for quail conservation as indicated by the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative Biologist Ranking Information. Resource professionals and contractors interested in learning about native warm season grass establishment will work closely with the project manager to develop the demonstration sites. Training workshops, including field days held at the demonstration sites, will be offered to resource professionals and landowners. Workshop participates will receive an instructional DVD that will be developed from information gathered from the demonstration sites. It’s AWF’s desire that this project will contribute to a better understanding of native warm season grass establishment and management among natural resource professionals, contractors, and landowners, and thus, more grassland habitat created for quail and other wildlife.
