Species Inventory

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”7646″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1442233971710{padding-top: 15px !important;padding-bottom: 200px !important;background-color: #005550 !important;}”][vc_column_text]For several years the foundation has been developing an inventory of species on the property, with a concentration on botanical, reptile and amphibian species.

Collecting such information is crucial for good habitat management. Certain species have specific ecosystem needs, and even subtle, gradual changes in their habitats can impact them negatively. This is especially true for listed species, which have often diminished in numbers because of habitat loss or degradation. Awareness of the species population on the property and learning their specific needs helps us to be responsive to their habitat needs and make management decisions that support a healthy ecosystem.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
