Conservation Projects at Habitat
Habitat Education Center & Wildlife Sanctuary is actively involved with a variety of projects that relate to wildlife and ecological management.
As part of a Mass Audubon initiative called “Nature by the Yard” stemming from our goal to reduce the loss of biodiversity, the 1,500 square foot grassy courtyard at Habitat is undergoing a transformation.
Instead of low-cut grass, the area will feature a range of native plants. Our hope is that visitors explore the area, investigate the plants, and observe the pollinators and other species who benefit from the reimagined space. Learn more about the transformation
Ecological Managment with Goats
A herd of goats support our property staff’s work by eating invasive plants and munching on brush to maintain a healthy ecosystem. They graze on buckthorn, bittersweet, poison ivy, and more on their daily adventures around the sanctuary.
