Public/Private Partners Protect Oak WoodlandsAcorn Woodpecker by Jon Goulden, 2013 State of the Birds report, p. 21

The Central Umpqua-Mid Klamath Oak Habitat Conservation Project—funded by the Natural Resources Conservation Service Cooperative Conservation Partnership Initiative and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program—has channeled more than $3.8 million to restore 2,000 acres of oak woodlands on private lands in southern Oregon and northern California.

Two local conservation groups, the Lomakatsi Restoration Project and Klamath Bird Observatory, are working with landowners to create and restore oak woodland habitat for Oak Titmouse, Acorn Woodpecker, and Black-throated Gray Warbler. This unique collaboration received the 2012 Department of Interior Partners in Conservation Award.
