Hi Zelene,

For several years The UConn farm manager has worked with the local birding group (NOS) to set aside a portion of the farm to be left unmowed. Steve Morytko has been the lead in making this happen. Not mowing any of the hill is unlikely to happen as it is a working farm, and they use the hay to feed livestock - unless, of course, conservation groups were to put up the money to offset the losses as has been done elsewhere in similar circumstances. 

(Who is at UConn but not in any way involved ...)
