Moose Hill Undertaking Wildlife Habitat Management Project
In early January, Moose Hill was awarded a Wildlife Habitat Management Grant from the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game (Mass Wildlife) to increase upland habitat diversity and improve early successional habitat for plants and wildlife.
Work on the project began in mid-February and will be completed by the end of June.
Impact on Your Sanctuary Visit
We have removed invasive trees and shrubs and thinned some forest edges to increase open field, shrubland, and young forest habitats, facilitate shrub and forest understory regeneration, and to support a healthy and diverse natural landscape within our sanctuary.
The fields and forest edges along Billings Loop will be changing over the next few weeks as we complete work on this grant.
