Recovering Quail - Maryland Early Succession Habitat Workshop
Washington College, Chestertown MD
Bobwhite quail have experienced the greatest decline of all birds in Maryland in the last 50 years, in large part due to the loss of early succession habitat – meadows, grassland, shrubland, and young forests. To reverse this trend, we will be holding a workshop for farmers, foresters, landowners, and land managers with a strong interest in creating or managing quail and early succession habitat on a scale of 10 acres or more. To view the agenda and register to attend, please visit go.umd.edu/quailmeeting.
