Conservation Work

forest 

Flat Rock Brook’s 150 acres of forested land is a unique sanctuary in a highly urbanized area. It acts as a refuge for plant and animal species in an area otherwise lacking an abundance of green spaces. We implement practical and effective conservation and management projects that ensure a bright future for the forest at Flat Rock Brook.   Recently, we have planned or implemented a number of new projects to protect the health and diversity of our forest.

Construction of a permanent Deer Fence, completed in September 2017, was a crucial first step to improve forest health at Flat Rock Brook as overbrowsing by deer has caused significant forest degradation.  Through a number of different upcoming land management projects, including a vegetation survey and monitoring project, a wildlife survey, an invasive species mapping and baseline survey project and two large-scale habitat restoration projects, our mission to preserve our forest is supported through our work in the field. All of these projects and initiatives share a set of goals.  We are working to increase and conserve biodiversity, increase the viability of our forest as wildlife habitat and support forest regeneration and re-growth of native vegetation.
