Parkland & brushland habitat

Shrubland habitat.In semi-open, brushland landscapes, restoration and maintenance with prescribed burning, mowing or shearing is appropriate to sustain habitat for wildlife such as sharp-tailed grouse, loggerhead shrikes and elk. Planting trees or lack of management that allows forest to grow is discouraged.

Examples

  • Protect: Maintain habitat through conservation easements on private land or acquisition.
  • Restore: Savanna and bog restoration and enhancement.
  • Enhance: Improve habitats with methods such as prescribed burning, mowing or shearing, timber harvest andinvasive species control.
