CONSERVATION PRACTICES AT RAVEN’S NEST

Land Conservation & Ecological Restoration

Since our arrival at RAVEN’S NEST NATURE SANCTUARY we have been committed to restoring degraded Habitats and to promoting land Conservation.  As we firmly believe that every inch of land is sacred, we actively restrict the amount of land devoted to cars (parking and driving), opting to rehabilitate much of the former dirt road into recovering wildlife Habitat.

Today you would scarcely recognize those large areas around both our School and Abode where  many years of abuse by cars and severe weed-whacking created a dry dustbowl nearly devoid of plants.  Instead you will see, feel, hear, and enjoy the abundance of wildlife and native plants that is characteristic of the Sky Islands Region.  All of this diversity – a panorama of wildlife – is a joy to experience!
