Carolina Regional Quail Project Field Day
Join Tall Timbers under the tent and in the field at Little Hobcaw Plantation for our annual Carolina field day on Friday, October 6.
Little Hobcaw Plantation is a 3,680-acre property near Kingstree, South Carolina, formally owned by Bernard Baruch, later by James Sigmon and now by Southern Pine Plantations. It provides one example of how the Carolina Regional Quail Project (CRQP) delivers Tall Timbers’ science-based quail management to help guide and ensure the greatest return on investment. A CRQP plan for intensive habitat renovation is being applied on Little Hobcaw with the ultimate goal being a fully restored high density wild bobwhite population. This is being conducted in a multi-phase process where intensive habitat renovation will be coupled with supplemental feeding and predator management. Once habitat renovations are in place and cover has adequately responded we will conduct translocation of wild birds to jump start the population recovery.
