NWTF Partners with Quail Forever on AL Habitat Projects

As part of a $1 million grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Southern Company, the National Wild Turkey Foundation (NWTF) will help restore native longleaf pine to 160 acres in Alabama’s Wind Creek State Park. In a collaborative effort, the Covey Rise Chapter of Quail Forever also will conduct a longleaf habitat improvement project on an adjacent 40 acres in the park. The chapter will focus on thinning and enhancing existing longleaf pine in this area. The initial timber thinning will be implemented and administered by the Alabama State Parks Division in accordance with the open and competitive timber sale procedure as specified by state law. The initial thinning is scheduled to begin late winter.

Longleaf pine forests are some of the South’s most unique ecosystems. Read more about the project HERE.
