IDENTIFYING NATIVE SPECIES IN INTEGRATED VEGETATION MANAGEMENT (REGIONS: USDA ZONES 4-11)

Native Species-1

 

Native plant species play a vital role in local ecosystems, and with the decline of these species, there has been a significant deprivation in native biodiversity. This impacts loved species such as the monarch butterfly. Native plant species not only promote important habitats for pollinators and wildlife, but they also save time and money when successfully managed in rights-of-way. This webinar focuses on identifying native plant species and how they can be utilized effectively in IVM by illustrating studies, as well as established rights-of-way as habitat, within the last 60+ years.
