Mower Tract Ecological Restoration

Grants and Contracts Details


Green Forests Work in partnership with the Monongahela National Forest, Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative (ARRI), West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, NRCS Plant Materials Center, and the Central Appalachian Spruce Restoration Initiative propose to continue implementation of ecological restoration on 2,600 acres of the Lambert watershed. A holistic suite of restoration activities including soil decompaction, wetland restoration, woody debris loading, and planting of native trees and shrubs will restore habitat for the federally protected Northern flying squirrel, native brook trout, and numerous species that inhabit wetlands. In addition, restoration of ephemeral stream channels will improve watershed conditions by preventing erosion and subsequent sedimentation in Lambert Run.
