Native Warm Season Grasses – Morgan County

Establishment of Native Warm Season Grasses – Morgan County

This project, entitled “Morgan County Landfill Native Grassland Management”, will convert approximately 56 acres of fescue, Bermuda grass and other undesirable grasses to native warm-season grass-forb mixture to provide habitat for priority grassland birds including Henslow’s Sparrow, Prairie Warbler, Dickcissel, Field Sparrow, Grasshopper Sparrow, Eastern Meadowlark, Northern Bobwhite, Short-eared owl, Northern Harrier, American Kestrel and American Woodcock.  The conversion of fescue/Bermuda grass fields to native warm season grass will provide a corridor between Redstone Arsenal and Mallard-Fox Creek Management Area, known as the Tennessee Valley Migratory Bird Focus Area (TVMBFA).
