OUR FOURTH PILLAR OF CONSERVATION

PROTECT WILDLIFE HABITAT

A community in balance means healthy ecosystems and diverse and thriving wildlife. As our community is developed and further urbanizing, our wildlife and habitats are stressed and driven to more rural areas. In Davidson we are blessed with many special, not well knows pockets rich in wildlife.

THE WHAT

Scattered throughout the community, wildlife habitats are typically wooded and positioned along small streams. Our DLC program, which works in partnership with Davidson College, uses a scientific approach to identify, map, and keep track of key wildlife habitats in Davidson.  Permanent conservation isn’t practical because too many different people own the properties, so we concentrate on educating residents and landowners about the value of these corridors. We also show them the best land management practices to support wildlife habitats.

THE WHY

Some landowners don’t realize the importance of these habitats and may not have experience in the best land practices to protect them. Similarly, the public often isn’t aware of area wildlife habitats and how valuable they are.
