Summit County Safe Passages works to reduce vehicle collisions with wildlife, improving the landscape of connectivity for wildlife along Summit County’s roadways.
Each year, as more people visit or move to the county, we notice increased incidents of wildlife-vehicle accidents. Traffic and roadways interrupt the natural routes of many animals, dividing their habitats. Summit County Safe Passages is working to make specific recommendations for wildlife crossing structures and other conservation opportunities by researching the balance of wildlife needs with the ever-growing human population. Reconnecting the landscape with wildlife crossing structures will not only bring healthier wildlife populations, but will make our roads much safer for motorists as well.
Come enjoy this lecture on how Summit Safe Passages is working to help. This event is free and open to the public.
