Tah.mah.lah Sustainable Home Building and Habitat Restoration Project
Linda Yates and Paul Holland
CRE is conducting a long-term wildlife monitoring project for a LEED Platinum Certified home building project in Portola Valley, California. The project is being conducted by CRE, TRA Environmental Sciences, and HT Harvey and Associates. Monitoring consists of monthly timed searches for birds, amphibians and reptiles, camera trapping for terrestrial mammals and acoustic surveys for bats on a 2-acre property and surrounding areas. The project is using species diversity measures to compare pre-project to post project conditions after habitat restoration has been completed.
