Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.
This aquisition will secure 7.6 acres of wildlife habitat in the Magnolia area’s Kiwanis Ravine. This area provides habitat for a variety of wildlife species and includes a great blue heron rookery. Discovery Park is nearby, providing additional wildlife and open space facilities.
