It’s been a long and arduous three-year period for the newly coined National Bobwhite and Grassland Initiative (NBGI). From three retirements in key leadership positions, to the Office of Inspector General audit findings, to switching homes to Clemson University, few collaboratives could weather that perfect storm. Did I mention COVID-19, by the way? Solving complex challenges virtually took our technology and resolve to a whole new level. We endeavored to persevere. We have turned a corner and are getting back to the job of tackling one of the profession’s greatest challenges—restoring grassland habitat for
northern bobwhite and a host of other societal benefits.
