Project Overview
This proposal will result in enhancing 70 acres of poor quality grassland on the Burr Oak WPA that has been invaded by woody vegetation by destroying the existing vegetation and reseeding a high diversity of native grasses and wildflowers. An additional 62 acres of adjacent grassland will be improved by removing invading woody vegetation that degrades the quality of the grassland and serves as seed sources for reinfestation.
