Mother Earth News and Friends

Dec 4, 2020

In this episode of "Mother Earth News and Friends," we learn about the lesser prairie chicken, a beloved bird in the southern Plains of the United States whose population has dwindled over the years. But the good news is that people are working to save both the lesser prairie chicken and the delicate habitat it lives in. We chat with Mike Ford of The Conservation Fund and Dirac Twidwell of the Lesser Prairie Chicken Initiative to learn more.


Check out Brinsea and their leading incubation technology.
