Programs - Wildlife Habitat

The District office is located – one mile north of Garven Road (PR 213) on Pineridge Road. The property was donated to the District for the purpose of wildlife habitat preservation and education. The long-term goal is to establish walking paths and educational programs at the site.

The District has a quarter of land near St. Genevieve that is left in a natural sate to provide a natural habitat for wildlife and plants. This is also used for water retention to decrease the possibility of flooding downstream.

 

To protect fish habitat, the District has installed pool and riffle structures. The District did a fish study in Cooks Creek to determine the size and number of species of fish in the creek.
