CCI - Nature Preserve
One of the challenges for many wildlife companies is securing land for relocation of wildlife. Michigan laws state that wildlife can not be released on public lands or on privite lands without written permission from the landowner. Unfortunately, sites are difficult to obtain.
We have acquired approximately 15 acres of private high quality habitat. Approximately 13 acres of the land is mature oak & hickory forest. There are some black walnuts and american beech trees on the site. The diversity of nut producing trees ensure an abundant supply of nuts throughout the year. The remaining 2 acres consist of ash, elm, crab apple & dogwood. There is goldenrod, aster, grass, and wild rasberry thickets covering former logging trails. The property has abundant log piles from selective logging activities that provide additional shelter.
The CCI Nature Preserve is surrounded by approximately 5400 acres of State Land in Northern Oakland County. The proximity of our preserve to this public land exemplifies the vast area of the surrounding habitat.
In December 2011, we certified the preserve with the National Wildlife Federation. The certification process reviews the characteristics of the site in relation to food, water, cover, and places to raise young.
