The Problem

An association with the Jane Goodall Institute could only be a positive thing for the work we began two years ago and shall continue indefinitely to protect wildlife and improve their habitat. Our hope is that it will be a beacon to others to participate in and expand upon our work.

Our Plan

Removal of invasive plants, except where to do so would disturb wildlife. Planting native plants, especially those used to slow the flow of water and replenish the water table. Inform our neighbors about protecting and stewarding wildlife, such as owls, reptiles (newts and snakes), foxes, and opossums. Work with our neighbors on pest controls that do not harm wildlife. Diminish irrigation. And make what was a blind corner a more visible one for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and their pets.
