Watch List of Strawberry Plains

Through the restoration and stewardship of our landscape, Strawberry Plains has created and enhanced habitat to provide residence for 24 Watch List species on the 3,000+ acres of land under our management. The breadth of this list reflects the dramatic loss of habitat and the pervasive threats that confront birds and wildlife in our region. Your support of our conservation work and your actions at home help ensure these Mississippi icons have a place to call home for generations to come.
