What I Do: Removing invasive plant species and restoring the land
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Name: Bryan Huberty
Age: 31
Occupation: Botanist, restoration ecologist and owner of Ecological Restoration Service, Madison
Quote:
Spring is the best time of year to conduct burns in prairies. Thatís when invasive plants start coming in before the native species. Burning eradicates the invasive plants while leaving the native species to flourish.
Savanna burns are conducted in the fall from late September through mid-November.

I strive to increase the biodiversity of the land by encouraging the establishment of native plant species, which in turn will attract wildlife to the restoration...
