Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve: Future management activity/ vegetation plot analysis

Land Manager: Robin Weber, Stewardship Coordinator

Organization: Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve

Type: Future management activity/ vegetation plot analysis

 

Description: I hope to find funding support for a 200-250 acre burn on a heavily degraded portion of our properties comprised of coastal mixed forest and coastal shrubland with follow-up treatments in each of two subsequent years to include: prescribed fire, browsing, herbicide application, and mowing.  The intent is to monitor vegetation recovery to see which post-burn treatments are most effective at promoting native species recovery.
