Warsaw Prairie Restoration


Description


Site was part of a woody Biomass project in 2013. All trees/shrubs were removed from the site. Re-sprouts have been treated once; additional treatment is needed to ensure a successful transformation into native prairie. In addition, the weeds need to be mowed on the site to reduce the amount of weed seed present and allow for the establishment of native vegetation. Due to steepness of terrain, some areas will require either hand mowing or spraying. Plant the area in the fall of 2014 using native, local origin, prairie grasses and forbs. Follow up mowing ad treatment of re-sprouts will be required for the establishment of native vegetation.
