Conservation Work

We are dedicated to leaving our property better for wildlife than when we bought it. In order to achieve this goal of habitat diversification, we have to endure a period of time when the land is raw, and the wildlife disturbed. But as of early 2007 we are beginning to see the results. About eight acres of brush have been cleared from the old apple orchard and behind the house. This land will be converted to “natural stage” pasture – great for ground nesters such as grouse, and good forage for deer, moose, and the like. Pumpkins, turnips, corn, purple coneflowers, and sunflowers will be planted for the wildlife. For panoramic photos of the overall project, click here. The photos below show some of the detail work as it is being done.
