    Copperwood Schoolyard Habitat

    for Environmental Education

    Glendale, AZ - December 2016

     

    • Description

      ACO Polymer Products, Inc., donated custom polymer concrete wildlife fencing and a custom fiberglass tortoise burrow to the Copperwood Schoolyard Habitat for Environmental Education Project.

       

      The site includes an existing schoolyard habitat with native plants and a small pond. The adjacent site includes several outdoor classroom amenities and a new tortoise habitat. The habitat is surrounded by a 20’ x 25’ enclosure/wall and will be visited by hundreds of students throughout the school year, as well as the community.

       

      ACO’s wildlife wall system is perfect for the enclosure as it provides a barrier under the ground as well as above. The polymer concrete material and rounded top edges of the wall are safe.

    Waterton Lakes National Park

    Calgary, AB, Canada - August 2008

     

    • Description

      Conservation specialists working at the Waterton Lakes National Park in Calagary, discovered that the roadways were a hazard to the endangered salamanders natural habitat. The salamanders migratory paths crossed the roadways and during migration, many were being killed as they crossed the roadways.

       

      A tunnel system was built into the road complex around the park to allow the Salamanders safe passage beneath the road.

      The AT500 is an 18” wide tunnel t hat is rated to load class D to ensure the safety to both salamanders and drivers.

       

      ACO Wildlife recycled plastic, tunnel entrance and fence systems were used to guide the Salamanders into the tunnels.

    Santa Cruz, CA - August 2002

    • Description

      To get permission to build an exclusive housing development in the hills above Santa Cruz, California, the developers had to build a series of Amphibian tunnel and fence systems to allow the Santa Cruz long toed Salamander to migrate across the development to their breeding ponds.
