Gibson’s Grant offers over 55 acres of dedicated conservation area designed to promote and create habitats for the native flora, fauna and vegetation unique to the Kent Island geographical region. Element Design Group was responsible for environmental planning of the conservation area. The conservation area and buffer zones provide an ecological buffer to the site’s housing while functioning as a necessary component within the region’s larger ecosystem. The creation and enhancement of the wetlands provides the opportunity to ensure that wildlife habitats are maintained in the conservation area and buffer zones. Maintaining a delicate balance between humans and nature is vital for the Gibson’s Grant conservation area and buffer zones. To that end, the site includes numerous walking trails with interpretive centers for further exploration. Open to the public, this trail system creates an opportunity to better understand the natural landscapes and habitats unique to the eastern shore.
