Tall Timbers leads the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative

By Dr. Bill Palmer and Dr. Theron Terhune

The National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative (NBCI), a national strategic plan for the recovery of northern bobwhites, is currently being revised by Tall Timbers. During the past year and a half, 25 state workshops were convened where invited biologists ranked the landscape (High to Low) based on habitat management opportunities and constraints. To date, more than 35 organizations (NGOs, state and natural resources agencies [e.g. DNR agencies, USFWS, NRCS, USDA]), academic institutions, joint ventures, and private wildlife professionals) and more than 600 professional biologists have participated in the ranking process and provided valuable input to buttress the revision process.

By Kevin McGorty, Tall Timbers Land Conservancy Director

Chris BorgThe beautiful Upper Flint River passing through Talbot County, Georgia includes some of the best hot spots for anglers fishing for endemic shoal bass. The 5,900-acre Big Lazer Creek Wildlife Management Area is one of those hot spots. Along this portion of the river, the public is afforded scenic views of spectacular hardwood forests and bluffs. Tall Timbers recently closed on two conservation easements from brothers Stan and Roger Lumsden on their property called Flint River Plantation that will now protect an additional 3.5 miles of river frontage on 1,572 acres in this area.
