Current Projects

All native planting restoration projects require existing plants (typically grass and invasive species) to be killed and removed (one of the techniques used is prescribed burning). This allows for areas to be seeded and planted with a diverse mix of native plants. Maintenance may include mowing and burning to reinvigorate growth of the beneficial species, along with spot-spraying to remove noxious weeds. Native plantings often take a few years to "grow up" and "fill in."
