BLM Plant Conservation Program
Large-scale disturbances and other stressors threaten important plant communities and the ecosystem services they provide. These stressors include the spread of invasive plant species, altered wildfire regimes, habitat modification, land overuse, and natural disasters. Our ability to repair these damaged lands and stem the loss of cultural and economic benefits to society depends upon appropriate seed availability, research, decision tools, and public support for ecological restoration. Through partnerships and collaboration, the BLM Plant Conservation and Restoration Program is developing tools to facilitate the commercial development of native plants and improve restoration outcomes. By conserving and restoring native plant communities, we can more effectively manage public lands and rehabilitate valuable working landscapes.
Mountain States Wholesale Nursery
Selecting regionally appropriate plants has never been more important. Climatic changes will force us all to question our choices. Understanding your options will be key in planning and designing for the future.
