Did you know Yellowstone has a native plant nursery and greenhouse? When a road project has been approved, employees like Sam will survey the area and collect seed from native plants. A portion of the seed is sowed in the greenhouse during the spring, and the seedlings grow through the summer. When a construction project is finished, the plants are brought back to the area where they were collected to rehabilitate the disturbed areas.
