Document Description
The goal of this project is to increase habitat for birds and pollinators and engage the local community in conservation practices. This project will replace a section of a grass field with native plants. The establishment of native vegetation will add diversity in the species and structure of the plants in the area which will increase food and shelter for birds and pollinators. This project will involve students through classroom lessons and through implementing the plantings, engaging them in the restoration process. Activities will include removing grass prior to restoration, sheet mulching area prior to planting, planting native shrubs, forbs, and graminoids, installing temporary fence to protect plants while they become established, installing irrigation for native plantings, installing nesting boxes for birds, removing/controlling invasive plant species using manual methods (hand pulling, hand tools), and conducting plant establishment monitoring and photo monitoring of the habitat restoration site. Total project area is 0.63 acres.
