Does the institution have programs in place to protect and/or create wildlife habitat on institution-owned land?:

A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:

We have many areas designed to maximize wildlife habitat potential. The newest addition was a small pond located behind Stone Village with various collections of water plants and rocky areas. Many frogs have already been observed and a couple of ducks appear to be making it their home. There is also a garden with a small waterfall and fish pond near the science center and greenhouse. In addition to rabbits, many different species of insects, birds and fish reside there. Some of the trees and shrubbery on campus were planted for the purpose of providing suitable habitat for squirrels and birds. All of these are protected from litter and advanced human disturbance, although students are encouraged to enjoy them responsibly.
