Conservation Project Underway At Sauder Village

PHOTO PROVIDED

Archbold, OH Working in partnership with the Fulton


County Soil and Water Conservation District, a major
conservation project is currently underway at Sauder
Village. The conservation project includes installing
grassed waterways, cover crops, windbreaks, subsurface
drainage, filter strips, gully control structures, a riparian
forest buffer, and a rare oak savanna including a diversity
of native grasses, trees and 16 different wildflowers.
The Conservation Project at Sauder Village aims to
enhance water quality, soil quality, wildlife habitat, and
natural resource education, shared Pete Carr, Project
Manager. The project will focus on the water quality
resource concern - addressing watershed issues and
resource concerns pertaining to flooding, soil erosion,
sedimentation, wind erosion and nutrient runoff.
The conservation practices included in this project
are funded through the U.S. Department of Agricultures
Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). State
Conservationist, Terry Cosby, aided in this effort to secure
funding through the Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP). EQIP is a voluntary conservation program
that provides landowners with cost-share assistance and
technical assistance to implement conservation practices
on working agricultural land.
We were pleased this Conservation Project could be
funded through the Environmental Quality Incentives
Program, shared Debbie Sauder David, President & CEO
of Sauder Village. We appreciate the opportunity to work
with the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation

District to develop this unique conservation area at


Sauder Village.
As part of this Conservation Project, two grassed
waterways and one filter strip will be installed at Sauder
Village to help increase soil savings, prevent runoff and
improve water quality. A riparian forest buffer will also be
planted. The buffer and the 4-row windbreak will provide
environmental, economic, engineering, aesthetic and
wildlife benefits to Sauder Village. The trees will offer a
pleasing view while also serving as a windbreak.
Another highlight of this conservation project is the
establishment of a 10-acre Oak Savanna including native
grasses, trees and a variety of wildflowers. Oak Savannas
are rare and unique ecosystems where dry environmental
conditions result in sparse tree growth. The objective is
to restore both sparse oak stands and the diversity of
plants - creating a habitat suitable for use by a variety of
wildlife such as deer, turkeys, songbirds and the Karner
Blue Butterflies. The Oak Savanna will be planted with
several oak tree varieties including burr, white, black and
pin Oak and will be seeded with various grass species.
It will contain many native flowers including black-eyed
Susan, blazing star, purple coneflower, wild blue lupin
and many others.
Oak Savannas only exist in three Ohio counties
Fulton, Lucas and Henry, through the Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP), Pete Carr shared. Numerous
wildlife species thrive in this globally rare ecosystem and
establishing a ten-acre Oak Savanna at Sauder Village
will help to preserve and enhance these unique regions.
Staff and volunteers from the Fulton County Soil
and Water office have started planting many trees south
and east of the Campground. Already this fall they have
planted a four-row windbreak with about 1600 total trees!
Each row is 3,785 feet long. The windbreak includes one
row of white pine, one row of Norway/blue spruce mix,
one row of Douglas fir and one row of American cranberry
bush. They also planted the riparian forest buffer which
consists of one row of pin oak and one row with a mix
of black cherry, American elm, bitternut hickory, sweet
gum, tulip, poplar, red oak, sugar maple and red maple.
Natural resource education and awareness will also
be an integral part of this conservation project. Walking
paths, trails and educational signage will be installed
allowing visitors to view the rare oak savanna habitat and
the plant and animal species it has to offer.
Work on the conservation project at Sauder Village will
continue early this winter as weather conditions allow
with the project completion slated for Spring of 2015. For
