Californian Lutheran University | Safe Passages: Creating a Wildlife Corridor: Constructing a wildlife corridor connecting urban edges to wildlands by reintroducing native plants to attract local animals. | Goal 5: Thriving ecosystems, habitats and biodiversity.
Safe Passages creates a wildlife corridor on the riparian zone connecting adjacent wildlands with the urban environment of the Cal Lutheran campus. Working with their innovative seed garden, the project is reintroducing native plants which will attract local wildlife. Initial restoration of the corridor began at a campus event where approximately 30 students participated in cultivating 150 plants, trees and shrubs – initiating the creation of a new ecosystem. Placing this restoration corridor on campus will advance the educational and sustainability goals of the university.
