East Texas Natives
East Texas Natives Project native seed demand includes for grassland, savannah, and forest understory restoration in longleaf and shortleaf pine ecosystems, native seed sources of native plants suitable for pipeline and highway right of way revegetation are also needed. Other needs in East Texas include ecotypic seed sources and methodology for converting bermudagrass and other non-native pastures to native prairies. Seed collection efforts, and work to assist with commercialization of East Texas PMC and US Forest Service seed selections will be major focuses. Evaluations will be conducted at the Nacogdoches PMC, Boggy Slough, and other locations identified in the coming year.
