Mission Statement

The mission of the USDA-NRCS Bobwhite Restoration Project is to develop technology that assists NRCS field staff in future planning and to support research and demonstration projects that, within the context of NBCI habitat and population goals, evaluate the efficacy of NRCS conservation practices in restoration of northern bobwhite habitat and populations. This support will be provided through a Grants-in-aid program that provides fiscal resources to institutions designing and implementing research and demonstration projects that specifically evaluate the efficacy of NRCS conservation practices and resource management systems deployed in a manner that achieves the habitat goals of the NBCI. Note that grants may be used for evaluation of, but not implementation of, conservation practices and initiatives designed to accomplish the goals of the NBCI.
