Habitat Management Plan

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to your year. 

I have some exciting news to share.  Within the next few weeks, our Habitat Management Plan will be completed and published.  We have been developing this document for over a year and to have it almost complete is a great feeling.

This plan will guide all our work on the prairie for at least the next five years.  It documents the priority areas on our 175 acres, what the next steps are for those areas, and what resources we need to accomplish our goals in each area.

For example, this plan will include a detailed chart that shows which native seeds and how much of each seed we would need in order to re-plant one acre of prairie.  With this type of information documented and laid out, we will be able to more effectively and efficiently restore native prairie to our Whidbey property. 

We have received input from over 12 experts in related fields on this plan.  Many thanks go to the writers, Seth Luginbill (PRI Land Steward), Robert K. Pelant (PRI CEO), Randy Van Dragt (PRI Board Chair and Restoration Ecologist), and Peter Dunwiddie (Prairie Restoration Expert and Consultant). 

Thank you so much to all of you for your support of this rare native habitat.  Did you know that the US Fish and Wildlife Service has said that the prairie ecosystem is the FASTEST disappearing ecosystem in Washington State?  Your funds are directly helping to reverse this.

We will make our plan available electronically to anyone who is interested, so please let me know if you would like to see a copy when they are finished.

Many thanks!
