Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary

Year Planted: 1997

Trees Planted: 825
Location: Maryland

825 seedlings were planted on 13 acres of the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary by American Forests in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Maryland’s DNR Tree-mendous Program, and the Audubon Society of Central Maryland. This project will protect and enhance an emergent/scrub-shrub wetland and restore a forest buffer on a 130-acre wildlife sanctuary owned and operated by the Audubon Society of Central Maryland. The reforestation site is a fallow field adjacent to a wetland which had been cut on an annual basis until 1994. The area being planted will form a link with adjacent forests and forest corridors for wildlife movement required by many songbirds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians who depend on fulfilling life requisites from both wetlands and the forest. The wetland also specifically serves as a critically important breeding habit for the spotted turtle.
