Deer Haven Park LLC has partnered with Keith Tidball, who has nearly 20 years of experience in natural resources management, land use planning and social-ecological research.
Tidball, who earned a Ph.D. in natural resources from Cornell University, will assist with the development of a wildlife conservation plan for the former Seneca Army Depot property in Romulus, Seneca County.
“We’re in the early stages of developing a master plan for the preservation and maintenance of the depot’s plant and animal life,” said Earl Martin, owner of Deer Haven Park, and its parent company, Seneca Iron Works. “Dr. Tidball’s expertise is critically important as we seek to protect the white deer and other wildlife throughout the property.”
Martin’s initial plans for the former army depot include clearing overgrown brush and invasive species and assessing the perimeter fencing to identify where improvements need to be made.
He has already invested in new machinery and equipment. In addition to the ecologist, Martin recently contracted with a full-time maintenance manager to oversee mowing and other groundskeeping responsibilities.
