Once conservation land is acquired, many of these lands typically require some level of the following:

  • Invasive exotic plant control
  • Trash and debris removal
  • Hydrological restoration or enhancements to improve water quality, sheet flow, hydroperiods, and wetland habitat to support wildlife
  • Reduction of overgrown vegetation to improve the midstory and canopy structure of many plant communities, and also to minimize fuel in an effort to reduce the intensity of flames during a wildfire or prescribed burn
