At the growing Bucknell University farm, we have been given the opportunity to establish an area specific to promoting and maintaining the biodiversity of native amphibian species. We propose a small set of seasonal ponds that will be used by various species native to Pennsylvania for living and mostly breeding grounds. The area will provide the Bucknell Biology and Animal Behavior departments with an opportunity for field research right on campus. Native aquatic and species friendly plants will be incorporated in and around the ponds as well. We know that this project may take years to properly get up and running, but with the goals and motivation to make the Bucknell University farm a place for amphibians to thrive, we are up to the challenge.
