This document summarizes monitoring of reintroductions of Kincaid’s lupine in multiple microclimates at three sites in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. Over the years of this study, we have found that seed source and microclimate both affect emergence, survival, and growth (height and number of leaves). Results will inform future management considerations regarding seed transfer zones […]
This report details habitat restoration actions undertaken in 2015 at Fir Butte, a Bureau of Land Management site in the West Eugene Wetlands. The actions are intended primarily to benefit Kincaid’s lupine and Fender’s blue butterfly. Actions included weed control and native species enhancement.
This report covers restoration activities at Twin Prairie, a Bureau of Land Management-owned mid-elevation meadow near Cottage Grove. Activities in 2015 included conducting a census of the shaggy horkelia population , removing Scotch broom and Himalayan blackberry, removing and girdling encroaching shrubs and doug-fir trees, and outplanting 220 plugs of shaggy horkelia to augment the […]
In 2015, the Institute for Applied Ecology participated in a variety of activities to support restoration and conservation efforts at Upper Oak Basin and Oak Basin Tree Farm. Significant activities included tree felling and girdling, flame weeding, planting and seeding, and hand mowing in and around Kincaid’s lupine patches.
This report includes information about Phase 3 of a four phase project. This phase of work involved seed collection, plug grow out, site preparation at selected locations, and population increase by outplanting thin-leaved peavine plugs.
This restoration plan outlines restoration activities to occur at Metro’s Canemah Bluff Natural Area. The plan is limited to the prairie, savanna, and Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana) woodland habitats present on approximately 20 acres at Canemah. The plan is intended to guide the enhancement of prairie and oak woodland habitats with the goal of […]
This report details habitat restoration actions undertaken in 2015 at Dorena prairie, a Bureau of Land Management prairie site in the Cascade foothills outside of Cottage Grove, Oregon. The actions are intended primarily to maintain open meadow and promote native species diversity in the meadow.
This report details habitat restoration actions undertaken in 2015 at Lost Creek meadow, a Bureau of Land Management site in the Cascade foothills outside of Pleasant Hill, Oregon. The actions are intended primarily to maintain open meadow and promote Hitchcock’s blue-eyed grass (Sisyrinchium hitchcockii), a federal species of concern, in the meadow. Actions include brush […]
This report details habitat restoration actions undertaken in 2015 at McGowan Meadow, a Bureau of Land Management site in the Cascade foothills outside of Springfield, Oregon. The actions are intended primarily to maintain open meadow and promote native species diversity in the meadow
This report outlines progress towards creating a restoration plan for Dalles Mountain Prairie, part of Columbia Hills State Park, Washington State. Background material and results of the monitoring of baseline vegetation conditions for a grazing study are presented.
This development plan describes the background and the steps required for creating a tribal native plant materials program at Confederated Tribes of Grande Ronde.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY We monitored 21 sites occurring on Prineville BLM lands in 2016, including 2 previously undocumented sites and 9 sites that had been monitored in 2015. Highlights from 2016 were: • Identified 2 previously undocumented populations • Plant counts/estimates revealed 44,024 individuals, and ranged from 12 to 29,249 o In 2015, plant counts/estimates revealed […]
Assessing the status and extent of Lupinus lepidus var. cusickii in Denny Flat, Baker County, OregonPetix, Meaghan I., Matt A. Bahm, and Erin C. Gray 2016
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY We conducted a full census of Lupinus lepidus var. cusickii subpopulations in Denny Flat on land managed by the Vale District of the Bureau of Land Management. In 2016, we monitored permanent monitoring transects to examine plant community and L. lepidus var. cusickii population trends. This species can have high annual variability and […]
