Dewberry (Dalibarda repens) is one of many native plants found on the GMNF.
|The goal of the native plants program on the GMNF is to promote the use of native plant materials in site restoration and show-case native plant species for educational purposes. This supports goal 2 of the Forest Plan, which is to maintain and restore quality, amount, and distribution of habitats to produce viable and sustainable populations of native and desirable non-native plants and animals. This program helps to conserve biodiversity on national forests.|
