STATE AND ECOREGIONAL PROGRAMS

BLM has native plant programs in 14 western states and 4 ecoregions. The plant communities that inhabit these regions are as varied as the topography, ranging from the carnivorous pitcher plants and bladderworts of Washington's peat bogs to the gnarled junipers of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Many of these communities are in danger due to increasing fire frequency, invasive species, and human development.
