CONSERVATION PRACTICES AT RAVEN’S NEST

Ravens-Way Wild Journeys Environmental Policy


One of our underlying philosophies is to promote Environmental Practices that will help lower our use of Power, Water, Fuel, and that minimizes the waste that we produce. This reduces our Ecological Footprint – the sum total of all of our actions (positive, neutral, or negative) on the Environment.

One of our key goals is “ ZERO WASTE : the recycling of all materials back into Nature or the marketplace in a manner that protects human health and the Environment”. To that end, we have chosen to refuse the weekly garbage collection service.

AT RAVEN’S NEST NATURE SANCTUARY we practice and promote:

  • COMPOSTING  All Food scraps
  • RECYCLING  All Glass, Plastic, Carton, Aluminum and Paper
  • SUBSTITUTE WITH ORGANIC, BIODEGRADABLE, HOME-GROWN, HAND-MADE, CLEAN ENERGY AND LOCAL PRODUCTS!
  • REDUCE/REUSE/RECYCLE
  • MINIMIZE CONSUMPTION

Throughout all of our Habitat Management Zones we have a number of vigilantly enforced Environmental Policies all aimed at safeguarding the Biodiversity of our Nature Preserves and maximizing your enjoyment of Nature:

  1. No pets of any type allowed, as they are a disruptive influence to our many Species of Wildlife
  2. Removal of all Non-Native Plants and use of them as Mulch to encourage the growth of Native Plant Species
  3. No Hunting or Trapping, except for non-lethal demonstrations during Stone-age & Wilderness Survival Programs
  4. Minimal Noise levels to reduce our auditory impact on sensitive wildlife species
  5. Always Stay on Trails, unless a specific Program requires otherwise
  6. Every Acre, every square inch of land is important. We take none of it for granted despite having over 100 acres in our two Nature Preserves.
  7. No Drugs or Tobacco are ever allowed, as we feel that Nature itself is mind-altering in the most positive way!
