The Natural Area on campus is a spring-fed pond (called a fen) that is used as a bio-retention pond and has been restored with native plants and a monarch butterfly garden. Solar aerators were installed a few years ago to help keep algae levels down. A lot of hard work has been done in the Natural Area to encourage native species to use it as their habitat, and for faculty and students to receive tangible experience with native plants and animals in this aquatic community

We do not want this work to go to waste, and harmful practices such as cutting down cat tails and spraying herbicide set back the wonderful work done by many faculty members and students. Steps must be taken to prevent harmful practices on this delicate habitat.
