The rare and declining habitat practice is a native grass and wildflower planting that provides soil erosion protection, as well as habitat for a variety of wildlife, especially upland game birds and songbirds.  These tall, stiff, upright grasses stand up well to snow and ice, which helps provide excellent winter protection and cover to upland birds.
