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

Slippery Rock University has received a Conservation Award from the Bartramian Audubon Society for establishing four Audubon wildlife sanctuaries since 2005. The sanctuaries, part of the University's green landscape and outdoor learning initiative, preserve 210 acres. The sanctuaries include 83 acres at the Robert A. Macoskey Center for Sustainable Systems Education and Research, 73 acres behind the Old Stone House, 42 acres of Miller forest on Wolf Creek and 16 acres of forest off South Main Street. SRU also has policies that govern the use of the Miller Tract and designated Campus Vegetation and Habitat Study areas.
