The goal of most restoration projects is to preserve the diversity of native
plant species in communities, to maintain productive wildlife habitat and to
stabilize eroding soil. Site selection for revegetation projects are typically
pre-determined based upon...
- Human disturbance
- High-use areas
- Noxious weed invasion/control sites
- Preserving buffers around sensitive species
- Soil compacted or bare ground locations
- Stream bank or shoreline erosion
Stewardship Plan for each Park identifies locations that are in need of
restoration activities and areas that are dominated by noxious weeds.
Established native species are an excellent way to prevent noxious weed
infestations and stabilize eroding soil. Pro-active restoration activities will
ensure the natural beauty of State Parks is preserved for all future
