Landrum Library Speaker Series – Quail and Grouse Corridors in South Carolina
October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Date: October 17, 2023
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Landrum Library
Speaker: Michael Hook, Program Coordinator with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources
Landscape level changes are needed to create the required habitat for many small game species in South Carolina. Bobwhite Quail, Ruffed Grouse, Appalachian Cottontail, Swamp Rabbits and a whole host of non-game birds use very specific early successional habitats and these areas are quickly disappearing across the state. This presentation will discuss what once was, what needs to happen, and some success stories.
Michael grew up in Lexington, SC on a family farm and attended Clemson University for my undergrad degree. I then went to work for the SCDNR in 2000 in New Ellenton SC helping to manage the Crackerneck WMA. Shortly I completed my graduate degree in Earth and Environmental and Resource Management at the University of SC. I have been the Small Game Program Coordinator since 2015.
The Landrum Library Speaker Series programs are made possible thanks to our partnership with the Spartanburg County Public Libraries.
