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:

Denison has a 350 acre biological reserve that is maintained to enhance the education of students in Biology and the Environmental Sciences through their courses, independent research and casual visitation to the Reserve. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for field studies of native Ohio flora and fauna as well as discrete biological communities that are maintained in as intact a condition as is possible given the land use history of the Reserve and the resources of DU. Consequently, one of the general goals of the Reserve is to maximize the number of representative habitats and species that the area can support. Recreational use of the area is restricted to limit the environmental impact.
