Fort Ord National Monument - Habitat Restoration


Each winter the BLM restores areas on the land in need of attention - like abandoned roads or erosion scars.  Restoration of these sites highlights a shared commitment that local communities hold for the Fort Ord Public Lands.

Local Volunteers Help Restore the Land

California State University Monterey Bay's Return of The Natives and thousands of volunteers have teamed up with the BLM to heal and restore dozens of degraded sites.  Volunteers enjoy live music as they plant native plants started from native seed collected by BLM Volunteers and then grown at the Watershed Institute or local school greenhouses.  Students are able to complete the restoration cycle by planting the seedlings alongside other community volunteers.
