Wildlife HabitatMonarch Butterfly

Pockets and groves of trees provide an ideal habitat for many species of butterflies.  Maintaining butterfly habitats allows for pollination and establishment of wildflowers each growing season.

  • Native bird species also have an established niche in the local environment; proper forest management supports a sustainable, thriving habitat.
  • There is a dwindling population of flying squirrels who dwell in our native Carolinian groves.  The northern flying squirrel​ is currently on the endangered animal's list, while the southern flying squirrel is under special concern.
