  • Early Successional Forest

    NFWF's Early Successional Forest Initiative focuses on establishing viable populations of the American Woodcock, Golden-winged Warbler, and some two dozen additional imperiled species that nest in young, regenerating forests in eastern North America.

    Cost-effective, ecologically sound habitat creation and enhancement in key bird conservation regions is the primary goal of this program. Conservation planning for these species in both North America and in the Neotropics (the birds’ wintering grounds) is also a priority.

    These actions are being supported through a competitive grants program administered by NFWF and implemented by federal and state governments, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions.
