Back to Linking Habitat Restoration to Bioenergy and Local Economies

Sakatah Lake State Park


Cutting, moving, sorting, staging and utilization of ecologically inappropriate woody plant material to restore a total of 45 acres: 10 acres of oak savanna and 35 acres of prairie over 3 sites. ENRTF paid $34,400 for the 15-acre Site 1 and the Parks and Trails Fund of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment provided $24,000 for the additional 30 acres of prairie restoration on Sites 2 and 3. A combined biomass harvest/biomass sale bid solicitation was piloted to pay the harvest contractor to remove the unwanted vegetation while also requiring them to properly utilize the biomass material. The woody biomass sale valued the material at $1,000 resulting in 30 semi-loads of commercial mulch (Site 1) and 43 semi-loads = 860 tons of ground material for bioenergy (Sites 2 and 3). This project was accomplished through a state bid solicitation and not a grant agreement.
