Habitat Management 

California Grassland Bird Conservation Plan

California Partners In Flight This plan has been developed to guide conservation policy and action on behalf of grassland habitats and birds. The geographic scope of this plan is the distribution of annual and native perennial grasslands in the state, which are found predominantly along the coast and in California’s Great Central Valley. The plan has focused on data concerning seven focal grassland bird species that are dependent on these habitat types. A primary finding of this plan, and therefore its most important recommendation, is the paucity of data concerning grassland bird species and the need to collect basic information concerning species distribution, productivity and survival before extensive conservation recommendations can be made.
