Turner House

The Turner House is home to the North Carolina State University Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences Program. The grounds around the building are designed to be a demonstration of how to create a wildlife friendly area by landscaping with native plants. Before these landscaping improvements were made, the grounds were relatively barren and contained mostly exotic plant species that had little wildlife value. With University faculty providing oversight, students in the Department of Horticultural Science designed the landscape to provide excellent wildlife habitat in an attractive setting. Students from the Leopold Wildlife Club at NC State helped remove the exotic plants, install North Carolina native plants, and create paths. You are invited to walk along the paths using this brochure, the plant identiļ¬cation tags, and your senses to learn more about landscaping for wildlife with native plants.
