Habitat Heros #118: The Ruffed Grouse Society

During this week's podcast, Adam sits down with the President of the Ruffed Grouse Society to discuss the organization's mission and goals. We hope that this podcast comes as a welcome surprise to you. From one land manager to another, this group understands the importance of habitat management for the benefit of a declining species. Fundraisers are great, but habitat on the landscape will make a huge difference for the ruffed grouse, now and in the future.

It is very encouraging to sit back and listen to the root of development for the Ruffed Grouse Society. This group takes habitat management to the next level with the impact and range they cover. It is critical that ruffed grouse have young forest under 15 years old in their home ranges. Efforts for ruffed grouse are being made in key states like Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin, Minnesota and more!  This woody regeneration creates forage opportunities, nesting cover, drumming logs, and various other necessities that allow the ruffed grouse to persist. It's no shock, but now you know how vital this type of vegetation is for other migrating birds and various mammals, game and non-game.

Be sure to listen closely to the direction and importance the Ruffed Grouse Society places on true habitat management. Follow along this week with our collaboration with the Ruffed Grouse Society on social media.
