  • Work supported by U.S. Army at Fort Bragg, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, North Carolina chapter of The Nature Conservancy, and North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
  • To expand its training capacity, Ft. Bragg had to improve habitat for the threatened red-cockaded woodpecker.
  • Two strong social interests provided links to community support of this effort–widespread interest in youth employment, and opportunities for family camping, both interests of which can be expanded in habitat programs.
