About the Program
Vulcan Materials Company's Dale Quarry is located just south of Richmond, Virginia. The team, that includes a wildlife leader, enhances growth of native milkweed to benefit native pollinators, birds, and insects. They also control invasive plants, such as kudzu.  

Practices and Impacts
Dale Grassland
  • Weekly walk-through of grassland to monitor milkweed growth
  • Grassland edges mowed twice per year to prevent spread of kudzu
  • Annual collection of milkweed seed pods and spread seed into mowed areas
DALE Nest Boxes
  • Monthly bird nest monitoring, increased to bi-weekly during breeding season

DEVELOPMENT OF THE WHC INDEX IS GENEROUSLY SUPPORTED BY
