About the Program
The 16.5 acre Ashland Inc. Hercules Landfill site is located in Brunswick, GA, approximately 70 miles north of Jacksonville Florida. Seven acres, the "009" landfill area, were used as an active landfill between 1948 and 1980. The site is part of a remediation project and the entire area is being left to revegetate. The team is actively working to attract wildlife to the vegetated habitat by adding cover boards and basking logs.

Practices and Impacts
  • The team monitors basking logs and coverboards that were placed in the pond and grassland habitats on site. This monitoring take place monthly and includes looking under cover boards and downloading photos from game cameras to identify wildlife using the habitat.
  • The team also monitors the site for signs of erosion, which are managed and repaired when necessary.
