Preserving the Sanctuary

Basic Principals of Stewardship for Community Volunteers

*Acknowledge the difference between the sanctuary’s garden-like areas, which exist for the benefit of human visitors, and its natural areas, whose primary purpose is to feed and shelter wildlife.

*Minimize disturbance of plants, soil and water, especially in natural areas. Despite the best of intentions, cleanup efforts may cause significant damage.

*Work only on projects and in areas designated by the Commission.

*Remove or add plants only as directed by the Commission. Non-native invasive plant species require careful management over the long term.
