Reseeding will help restore areas where primarily sage grouse and mule deer are established and suffering from habitat damage. Seeds were applied through aerial drops and drill seeding efforts.
“It was great to be part of a team with the goal of restoring the wilderness in such a beautiful and pristine area…definitely a trip to remember.”
This funding was an important part of a large, multifaceted Master plan designed to restore an 800 acre burned area. It is the first entirely private land based restoration we have undertaken and we are excited to be able to move it forward with the help of this grant. We hi the critical seasonal window for seed application and anticipate good results. Getting the seed into the ground before full winter t greatly increased the likelihood of germination and the critical return of mule deer forage and thermal cover.
