Press Release:

Scientist Completes Critical Habitat Assessment At Enclaves Residential Development In Lenexa, Kansas

September 13, 2013

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully received a clearance letter from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism in compliance with the Kansas Non-game and Endangered Species Act confirming the absence of regulated habitat of the Smooth Earth Snake and the Redbelly Snake at the Enclaves Residential Development in Lenexa, Kansas.


Scientists at Terra Technologies performed a detailed forestry survey of tree species, morphological characteristics, food sources, microhabitat, and waters sources in order for the governing agency to determine the eligibility for habitat protection. The Smooth Earth Snake and Redbelly Snake prefer certain mature tree species including hickories and oaks. Mature forests of oaks and Hickories and other relevant characteristics of the forest are often used as indices to determine the quality of habitat .


Because forested regions on the parcel lacked the required population and density of designated tree species favorable to Smooth Earth Snake and Redbelly Snake, construction activities at the Enclaves Residential Development will not impact any critical habitat and no mitigation is required.
