Does the institution have programs in place to protect and/or create wildlife habitat on institution-owned land?:
Yes

A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:

We do have programs that create wildlife habitat on institution-owned land. Our school forests (institution owned) are utilized to create wildlife habitat. Additionally, we have created food plots on campus to
promote wildlife. The program that is primarily responsible is Fish and Wildlife Management Technology, but Forest Management Technology also plays a critical role.

The College Advisory Council (CAC) also chose the 'Bird and Butterfly'garden as their capstone project last year. That was habitat creation on campus that involved leaders from all departments and had heavy support from Facilities and Maintenance.
