FCA Kokomo Transmission and Casting Plants
About the Program
The FCA Kokomo Casting and Transmission Plant is located in Kokomo, Indiana approximately 45 miles east of Lafayette, Indiana and is a Chrysler automobile factory. The landscaped habitat is comprissed of 3,000 square feet of fragmented, primarily native landscaping. The team focuses on conservation actions to protect, restore and manage pollinator habitats and address the conservation needs of the targeted wildlife species.
Practices and Impacts
- The team maintains the landscaped habitat through traditional methods and monitors the vegetation and pollinator use.
- Beginning in 2019, the team at FCA planted 3,000 square feet of open space on-site and along nearby park trails with a diverse mix of native nectar-rich and pollen-rich flowers and milkweeds.
- The team has committed to minimizing pesticide use in these areas, and leaving plants uncut in the dormant season to provide additional food and cover for wildlife.
- The condition of plants is monitored several times during the growing season, and the beds are mulched and weeded as necessary.
