Funded Research Projects: RESTORATION ECOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL HORTICULTURE

Monitoring Impacts to Rare Plant Populations from Range 12 Fire

Research Sponsored By: USDI Fish and Wildlife Service
Principal Investigator: Kern Ewing
Project Description
The Range 12 Fire at the Hanford Reach National Monument burned 176,600 acres in 2016, including riparian and shrub-steppe habitat high concentrations of rare and endemic plants. Under this project, Washington Rare Plant Care and Conservation will assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service with an assessment of the impacts of the wildfire on rare plant populations and and evaluate what restoration activities are recommended to stabilize and restore them.
