About the Program
The Opel Automobile manufacturing plant located in Kaiserslautern is a mostly industrial property with some wetland properties. The plant is currently operating and manufactures automobiles. Kaiserslautern is located near Ramstein Air Base and approximately 35 miles from Mannheim. There is a wetland that is 1.97 acres that the project team monitors. The wetland is home to a regional snake species that the project time is monitoring and managing.
Practices and Impacts
- The project team is committed to monitoring a wetland area that is near their facility. This is a crucial type of habitat that is important for local wildlife and should be protected.
- In the wetland there have been sightings of a Smooth Snake. The project team has placed rock piles to enhance the habitat and provide shelter and meet other life cycle needs and hopefully encourage growth of the population.
