Habitat Restoration & Conservation

In 2012, we began a restoration project to sustain native species and strengthen biodiversity. Led by Lower School science teacher Bill Earley, students helped clear invasive brush, plant seeds, and create ponds to strengthen biodiversity. Wildlife sightings have increased in recent years and include armadillos, deer, rabbits, cats, ringtails, foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and more. 

 

 

 

In addition to helping local species thrive, Trinity students have completed some construction projects to help people enjoy our nature preserve. These projects include restoring a historic homestead, constructing the Natural Classroom, dredging a water drainage channel, building a wooden bridge, and erecting the Chimney Swift Tower. These efforts to preserve our environment have helped transform our outdoor spaces into places of conservation as well as exploration and tranquility.
