The Indiana DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife has landed funding that will contribute to a new grassland and pollinator habitat development program that will benefit private landowners.
The "Grasslands for Gamebirds & Songbirds" initiative, called GGS for short, will employ three full-time "grassland biologists" who will provide technical and financial assistance to private landowners hoping to improve their properties by developing grassland and pollinator habitat throughout focal regions of the state. This habitat development will benefit species such as bobwhite quail, ring-necked pheasant, Henslow's sparrow and loggerhead shrike.
