Print Friendly Version
The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in New Mexico funded habitat restoration work on a private ranch in Mosqueros, Harding County, New Mexico.  The project includes reseeding 160 acres of a playa and upland buffers with a native seed mix, construction of fencing to facilitate livestock grazing rest and rotation, and water development.  These activities will reestablish a diverse plant composition and improve wildlife habitat especially for long-billed curlew (species of concern).
