Learn about “Quail and Grouse Corridors in South Carolina” at Landrum Library

Published 1:05 pm Monday, October 9, 2023

On October 17, Conserving Carolina and the Landrum Library for a free lecture entitled, “Quail and Grouse Corridors in South Carolina,” presented by Michael Hook, Program Coordinator with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. The program will be held at 6 p.m. at the Landrum Library, located at 111 East Asbury Dr. in Landrum. 

In South Carolina, there is a need to manage the landscape to create the necessary habitat for many small game species. Bobwhite Quail, Ruffed Grouse, Appalachian Cottontail, Swamp Rabbits and a whole host of non-game birds use very specific early successional habitats, and these areas are quickly disappearing across the state. This presentation will discuss what once was, what needs to happen, and some success stories across the state.

 

This lecture is part of Conserving Carolina’s monthly Speaker Series at the Landrum Library, and it is made possible thanks to the Landrum Library. The next program at the Landrum Library will be held on November 14, when Brooks Wade, of Jocassee Lake Tours, will present, “Loons of Lake Jocassee.”
