Perkasie, Pennsylvania

12 Acres | September 12, 2007
Estate of Florence Ammon, donor
Owned in Title

For more than 50 years, Bunny Ammon dedicated this 12-acre property in Bucks County, Pennsylvania to domestic animals in need of shelter. In 2007, her dream of ultimately transforming her land into a wildlife sanctuary was finally realized. Now, the Ammon Wildlife Sanctuary will forever serve as a safe haven for tree frogs, white-tailed deer, white-throated sparrows, and many other species. The property has a mix of woods and wet meadow, with trees such as black cherry, black walnut, and white oak, and flowers and shrubs such as jewelweed, mayapple, white mustard, multiflora rose, and wineberry.

The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust holds the title to this sanctuary.  That means HSWLT is responsible for all property taxes and maintenance costs for the property -- every year, forever.  In addition periodic inspections are made to ensure that the wildlife habitat remains in good condition.  These inspections, and the handling of any damage or destruction, cost heavily in professional staff time and travel expenses.

HSWLT has promised to keep this property as a sanctuary forever -- and that promise will be kept.  If you can help with the cost of stewardship for this and the other properties HSWLT protects, please donate here.
