Dear Natural Resource Professional:

Attached please find a description of the availability through E&S Environmental Restoration, Inc. of native grass seed for ecological

restoration and ecosystem enhancement projects. Our grass seed was grown from starter seed collected by Federal agencies in Oregon and is suitable

for planting in most natural ecosystems throughout western Oregon, Washington, and northern California.

Please let me know if you would like to receive hard copies of the brochure for distribution to the interested public. Thank you for your interest in revegetation using native species.

Ecological enhancement
Native Grass Seed Production
Environmental restoration activities
nationwide increasingly rely on the
availability of native plant materials.
Planting with native species is critical to
maintaining the biodiversity of plant and
animal communities and protecting
threatened and endangered species from
adverse effects of invasive exotic plant
species. Such plantings are key
components of riparian zone protection,
wetland enhancement, and erosion control.
They provide important soil stabilization
and habitat enhancement features associated
with livestock management, road repair and
decommissioning, post-fire revegetation,
and landslide stabilization.
Why revegetate disturbed soils?
Reduce soil erosion
Prevent
sedimentation of
streams
Establish
vegetative cover
Limit occupation of
site by invasive
weeds
Why use native grass species for revegetation?
Limit spread of exotic non-native plant species
Restore natural plant and animal communities
Enhance ecological balance
