Assessing “pollinator-friendliness” of native plants available for restoration

Projects Posted on: April 20, 2018
This project will conduct a science-based assessment of the pollinator-friendliness of plant species available for restoration and rehabilitation projects in Region 1.  A guide will be developed for several habitat types to tailor and recommend seed mixes that support the greatest number of species and abundance of pollinators.

Charter for the Western Center for Native Plant Conservation and Restoration Science

Documents and Media Posted on: December 14, 2016
Charter for the Western Center for Native Plant Conservation and Restoration Science, a collaborative group of scientists from the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest, Pacific Southwest, and Rocky Mountain Research Station. The Center’s mission is to address and provide science-based solutions to ongoing challenges in the conservation and restoration of western ecosystems, including impacts from wildland fire, invasive species, climate change and drought, increased occurrence of wildland fire in California chaparral and Great Basin sagebrush, and the decline of pollinators.
