PCA/NFWF Native Plant Conservation Initiative 2002 Projects

Diversity Protection Through Habitat Management (CT,ME, NH,RI,VT)
Select six sites on federal and private lands in New England with high quality habitats in need of management. Project will assess threats to the habitats, write management plans, and train volunteers to perform the necessary actions.
Grantee: New England Wild Flower Society

Glacial Lake Albany Native Plant Conservation (NY)
Restore 26 acres of habitat in the Glacial Lakes Albany region to support the recovery of the Karner blue butterfly and other species of interest. Outreach activities may occur in instances where they directly benefit habitat restoration efforts.
Grantee: The Nature Conservancy, Eastern New York

Intensive Plant Conservation Training (MO)
Develop a comprehensive Plant Conservation Principles course in workshop format. Course will serve conservation professionals with rare and imperiled plant conservation/management responsibilities and support information needs of federal agencies.
Grantee: Center for Plant Conservation

Invasive Assessment of Alien Vascular Plants-II (VA)
Document impacts of at least 200 invasive alien species on native species and ecological systems. Information will prioritize on-the-ground invasive species prevention, research, and management efforts and will be posted on a searchable web database.
Grantee: NatureServe

Kilauea Forest Fencing and Habitat Restoration (HI)
Construct a fenced management unit to protect and restore 1,300 acres of native Hawaiian rainforest. Project will protect several endangered plant species by fencing out feral pigs.
Grantee: Hawaiian Silversword Foundation

Native Plants/Native Knowledge (NC,VA,WV)
Consolidate and share traditional knowledge about conservation of wild Native American medicinal plants through creation of educational curricula. Project also will work with 8-12 tribes to develop protocols and use them to sustainably cultivate plants.
Grantee: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Parashant Floristic Survey-II (AZ)
Continue to conduct floristic survey of Vermillion Cliffs and Parashant National Monuments. Project will locate rare plants, provide data to help in seeding projects, and provide information on presence of noxious weeds and prevention of their spread.
