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:

Jefferson has a program in place to protect and/or create wildlife habitat on college-owned land.
The college is currently planning to return approximately 30 acres of Shelby Campus land to a fertile natural habitat with native grasses, as well as exploring the feasibility of internal reallocation to assist with the initiative. This project will decrease mowing and protect the area’s natural habitat.
Jefferson is also pursuing a similar initiative on the Southwest Campus, where a pond serves as a catch basin for stormwater that hold water for longer periods of time. Cypress trees and native grasses that attract wildlife have been planted. This project is intended to invite students to assess the area for documentation.
