Here at College of Arts and Sciences, we take pride in the conservation lands we steward. We deploy a range of land management techniques to preserve the ecological health and biodiversity of Florida’s unique ecosystems. These techniques include prescribed burns to control woody vegetation and promote the growth of fire-adapted native plants. Other techniques like mechanical removal help us manage invasive species on the property.
