Groundcover Restoration Field Day
9 am to 1 pm
Saturday, October 2, 2021
Gaskins Forest Education Center and
Coastal Plain Chapter, Georgia Native Plants Society
A variety of sites will be visited to compare and contrast groundcover restoration projects and management practices. Focus will be on management decisions rather than on identifying specific plants. We’ll think about challenges, successes, and ways to do it better next time, also managing invasive plant species. Habitats include minimum understory management (thin and burn) on different sites, economy understory restoration (thin and burn with limited use of supplemental seeds), high-quality seed mix for pollinator garden, conversion from turf grass to meadow, and rehabilitating a wetland area.
