Animal Planet’s Backyard Habitat

Charleston, South Carolina

This project was featured on Animal Planet’s Backyard Habitat as part of a series dealing with the restoration of natural ecosystems in an effort to attract and nurture native animal species. The filming of this segment dealt with creating habitat for migrating Ducks, Wood Storks and River Otters. Native Plant Material was meticulously selected for its ability to provide food and shelter as well as enhancing the visual corridors from the trail system and main house. To help determine the plant palette, studies were conducted in surrounding areas that were home to these species as well as consultation with naturalists and hunting enthusiasts.
