Farm Ponds for the Future

Farm ponds in rural areas have tremendous potential to provide environmental habitat for native plants and animals within agricultural landscapes. One Nature worked for a private residence and the Natural Resource Conservation Service to create two habitat ponds within an existing conservation easement.

The goal of the project was to create a new biodiversity hotspot in the valley that would compliment existing agricultural practices. Our design allowed for a three phase implementation over a four year period, and used native trees, shrubs, and grasses, especially early successional species, to integrate the ponds into the surrounding landscape. A series of trails and boardwalks around the new plantings provides a new picnic area, boardwalk, and entryway into the surrounding fields.

Note: While One Nature developed the conceptual vision for this project and performed construction management, professional design services for this project were provided through a subcontractor of the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
