Grassland habitat is essential for species of at risk birds, pollinators, deer, other wildlife...etc. As part of an agreement between South Nation Conservation and UCMBS a grassland habitat is maintained at the Sanctuary. periodically there is some maintenance of the site required to keep the area as a functional grassland.
SNC has hired a contractor to mow the grassland area west of the parking lot. This activity is required to discourage the growth of woody shrubs, trees and non-native weeds in the area and essentially is a way to maintain the grassland in place of fire which would normally fill this role in a more natural setting.
The maintenance took place this past weekend and possibly into the coming weeks.
