Life History and Recovery Efforts of the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker in the NC Sandhills
Presenter: Susan Miller, USFW Biologist
The Red-cockaded woodpecker is a federally listed endangered species endemic to open, mature and old growth pine ecosystems in the southeastern United States. Susan Miller, Fish and Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will speak at our April meeting about the life history and recovery efforts of the Red-cockaded woodpecker in the North Carolina Sandhills. Her primary responsibilities include working with private landowners to implement the Safe Harbor Program for the benefit of private landowners and red-cockaded woodpeckers in the North Carolina Sandhills region. She also provides educational outreach about the Safe Harbor Program and red-cockaded woodpeckers and reviews and reports on commercial development projects and building permit requests (in coordination with local municipalities) to determine impacts on fish and wildlife. Additionally, she coordinates the activities of the North Carolina Sandhills Conservation Partnership and North Carolina Longleaf Coalition and is the president of the North Carolina Prescribed Fire Council.
