Native Plant Restoration Test Plots

Project Name: Native plant restoration test plots

Project Collaborators: Upper Colorado Environmental Plant Center

Project Description: Several species and varieties of native plants are being tested in a garden-type experiment to determine how natives perform in an area historically dominated by invasive plants. Soil amendments will also be tested. Results should provide information on appropriate native plant species to include in seed mixes used for restoration and reclamation projects.

Project Dates: Spring 2011 to Spring 2016
