The Ambler Flatwoods area, ranked as imperiled by the state of Indiana, is a unique and rare boreal flatwood ecosystem bordered by riparian wetlands that supports a number of state-listed rare species. Shirley Heinze Land Trust will map and treat invasive species such as reed canary grass, multiflora rose, vinca vine, oriental bittersweet, and Japanese knotweed for two consecutive seasons on 40.2 acres (three recently acquired parcels). The project will improve habitat, biodiversity, and ecosystem resilience in a state imperiled natural area and improve habitat conditions for migratory birds, rare reptiles and amphibians, moths and butterflies, and rare and threatened native plants.
