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


To join click here

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

Why? North Carolina has a long history of wildfires. As people move into natural areas, their risk of wildfires increases. Fortunately, there are modifications homeowners can make to their home and landscape to be more fire-resistant.

Workshop Goals: The goal of this hands-on workshop is to teach participants fire-resistant landscaping (i.e. firescaping) recommendations to protect their homes and/or to teach others about firescaping. The workshop will cover firescaping basics, procedures for conducting a home landscape risk assessment, and suggestions for firescaping education and outreach to adults and youth. Most of the workshop will be spent working in small groups creating a firescape design, so participants learn to problem solve different real-world scenarios.

Organizers: Holly Campbell, Extension Associate, Southern Regional Extension Forestry; Hannah Thompson, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist, North Carolina Forest Service; Justin Query, Wildfire Mitigation Forester, North Carolina Forest Service; Jenn Fawcett and Laurel Kays, Extension Associates; North Carolina State University
