Will wildlife be enticed to nest or live in the bio-infiltration swale?
Country Homes Boulevard is a very busy road and, as such, would be a dangerous place for animals to be, in addition to a vehicular hazard.

Deer, small animals, birds, coyote, moose, etc., are already frequently spotted in the area, including at the Price and Wall Regional Stormwater Facility and in surrounding neighborhoods, due to the proximity to the vegetated hillside of the Five Mile bluff. The bluff provides important habitat for area wildlife. It is highly unlikely that more animals will come to the project area, let alone live or nest in it permanently, as it is a very busy, noisy corridor that is simply not conducive to nesting species.
