Document Description
The proposed project is the restoration and preservation of 185.9 acres of habitat for the federally and state listed giant garter snake at the Ridge Cut Garter Snake Conservation Bank site. The proposed project will preserve and enhance 48.4 acres of perennial marsh, 57.4 acres of open water, and 8.01 acres of uplands. There are two agricultural ditches adjacent to the site (Oat Creek to the south and an unnamed ditch at the northwest corner of the property) that currently support populations of giant garter snake. The created habitat will be hydrologically connected to these ditches in order to provide additonal habitat for these active populations of the snake.
