An Ecological Gold Mine

Watch Hannah Stout from Penn State University describe how the longest continuous study of vegetation management and its effects on wildlife habitat is improving conditions for various species, including pollinators.

The loss of habitat and connectivity of habitat represent two of the biggest threats to wildlife. Hannah Stout, a conservation entomologist and researcher, details opportunities to improve environments within utility rights-of-way and the “ecological gold mine” that the State Game Lands 33 Research and Demonstration Area provides for pollinator research.

Successfully incorporating habitat management into vegetation management programs allows today’s professionals to positively impact wildlife throughout right-of-way (ROW) corridors across the United States. As a sponsor of the State Game Lands 33 research project for many years, Corteva Agriscience provides more information on best management principles for electric right-of-way at
