Restoration Equipment and Seeding Strategies


The Great Basin-Native Plant Project and Fire Science Exchange, the BLM Plant Conservation Program, the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, and the Society for Ecological Restoration Great Basin Chapter are excited to bring you this webinar series on seeding and restoration that will provide an opportunity to highlight and discuss current research, case-studies, and tools that help inform applied restoration opportunities throughout the Great Basin. These webinars are free and open to the public. We encourage the participation of resource professionals, managers, cooperators, and partners interested in broadening the discussion of how these tools are relevant to sustaining our restoration investments at both ecological and economical scales.
