5-Acre Test Plot

Savanna Pilot Project

pilot project map

  • As part of our preparation for master plan implementation, we are restoring a 5-acre pilot area based on its historic ecological conditions.
  • The work on this test plot will inform our conservation team on the best methods for re-introducing native grasses and wildflowers.
  • Areas that are restored based on their historic ecological conditions are more resilient and sustainable, and provide a more diverse habitat for native fauna.
  • This pilot project will inform the design team and construction process of the entire master plan.
