Restoration and Conservation
The field station covers a mosaic of different habitat types, including forest, grasslands, shrublands, wetland, vernal pools, streams, and ponds, each of which is home to a different community of plants and animals.
In 2019 we are starting a major project to restore 100 acres of our pastures to a native grassland.

We are committed to the difficult process of maintaining and restoring this vital ecological system, which will benefit not only the plants and animals who live there, but also the local community of landowners, nature enthusiasts, and scientists.
