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:

There are no specific programs, but the native plant garden supports wildlife habitat, as do the 205 unmaintained acres surrounding the maintained 95 acres of the Klamath Falls campus. These 205 acres consist of sage brush and pine and a canyon that is home to deer and a mountain lion. Some of this acreage will be disturbed for a large photovoltaic solar project. At this time, the grounds manager was unaware of any plan to protect or prioritize the wildlife that use the acreage the solar panels will be placed on.
