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

The campus has hundreds of acres of natural habitat for wildlife, natural woods, a lake, a rural setting surrounded by woods and farmland. The campus is noted for its deer, wild turkey, waterfowl and songbird populations, and is full of small fur bearing animals. We have created large native grass plantings and are currently working on a native wetland project connected to a watershed at the lake the first phase was completed this summer with two additional phases needed to complete project roughly over the next year and a half to two years.
