Projects: Eastern Military Grasslands
Potential of Eastern Military Bases for Conservation of Grassland Birds
Building Partnerships for Regional Grassland Bird Conservation in the Southeastern US
Department of Defense Legacy Resources Project 05-105
Native grasslands are one of the most endangered ecosystems in the eastern United States. The grassland bird species that are supported by these grasslands are also in dire need of conservation attention because of declining populations. Military installations provide important grassland habitat that serves a vital function for military training. As a result, eastern military installations have the opportunity to provide a critical role in conservation of grasslands and grassland bird communities.
- Document the potential of eastern military bases for grassland bird conservation
- Document the status of grassland birds on one focal military installation (Fort Campbell)
- Foster the development of regional partnerships for grassland bird conservation
