In the effort to steward the natural resources at Hull Springs Farm, generate environmentally-sensitive revenue, and simultaneously provide educational experiences for people of all ages, Longwood University worked collaboratively with scientists at Virginia Tech in developing a new Forest Stewardship Management Plan based on innovative application of cutting-edge research.

Research for the plan required a thorough inventory of the property, including studies of biotic and abiotic factors (e.g., current forest conditions, plant species composition, soil types, etc.) as well as other important parameters such as access to sites and adjacent landowners.

Data collected have been logged into a Geographic Information System (GIS) to facilitate decision making and aid in future education, research, and stewardship activities. This collaboration between Virginia Tech and Longwood University marks an important step in the development of Hull Springs Farm as an educational resource, and will allow the Farm to function as a showcase for new directions in forest and wildlife management.
