Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow (BCAS)
Statement on Habitat Protection
BCAS promotes and encourages the protection of land and water habitats on the local, state, and federal levels.
BCAS is concerned about the destruction, degradation, and fragmentation of viable habitat for wild plants and animals, which may harm local populations, lead to local extinctions, or increase human-wildlife conflicts. BCAS urges citizens and communities to preserve open space, curb development of farmland, preserve or restore watersheds, and protect waterways in both public and private areas.
Habitat protection is at the very core of BCAS’s mission and educational programs. BCAS is a steward of the Honey Hollow Watershed, registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1969. It is the first upland watershed in agricultural use and with multiple private ownerships that demonstrates that cooperative local action, supported by Federal assistance, is a practical method of achieving national goals in watershed health, soil science, wildlife conservation, and flood prevention.
