Description

Many wildlife species use or require fields and other areas of early successional vegetation to meet their habitat requirements. Native warm-season grass and forb mixtures (NWSG) are promoted through various state and federal conservation programs as a means of creating and managing early successional plant communities and as an alternative to nonnative grasses. Planting desirable native grasses and forbs through cost-share programs has become a common practice to create and maintain early successional areas for wildlife. This publication describes management practices and common problems faced by land managers who use native warm-season grass stands for wildlife.
