Working across two states, four Bureau of Land Management offices, and five counties, the Partnership has had a number of successes, total failures, and projects somewhere in the middle. 

The document is organized into key revegetation components, including:

  • Passive versus active revegetation
  • Site selection
  • Species size and selection
  • Planting and seeding
  • Maintenance
