For landowners who have endangered species or endangered species habitat on their land, the Safe Harbor program provides a means for them to manage their land without penalty, while working with government agencies to see that the needs of endangered species are met. This meeting will bring together federal and state agencies and private landowners to examine how the South Carolina red-cockaded woodpecker Safe Harbor plan has performed and what the future holds.
