Revegetation Program Overview
The goal of most restoration projects is to preserve the diversity of native plant species in communities, to maintain productive wildlife habitat and to stabilize eroding soil. Site selection for revegetation projects are typically pre-determined based upon...
- Human disturbance
- High-use areas
- Noxious weed invasion/control sites
- Preserving buffers around sensitive species
- Soil compacted or bare ground locations
- Stream bank or shoreline erosion
The Stewardship Plan for each Park identifies locations that are in need of restoration activities and areas that are dominated by noxious weeds. Established native species are an excellent way to prevent noxious weed infestations and stabilize eroding soil. Pro-active restoration activities will ensure the natural beauty of State Parks is preserved for all future generations.
