Other Upland Habitats

Approximately 110 acres of old agricultural fields in various stages of succession are available for experimental research. A history of the use and management of the agricultural and old field areas is maintained as part of our data base. Three of the old field areas are maintained permanently in herbaceous vegetation. Long-range plans for these fields include the introduction of native plants to increase species and community diversity. Prairie species have been planted in several fields.
