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 and engaging residents and landowners about the value of these corridors. We also show them the best land management practices to support wildlife. DLC’s Wildlife Habitat program includes two important initiatives:
1. The Wildlife Enhancement Collaborative, focused on habitat enhancement and restoration at Fisher Farm and Abersham Park.
2. The Wildlife Corridor Program, focused on educating residents about wildlife rich corridors and ways to enhance them.
