Release Date:

National Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration (National Seed Strategy) was created in 2015 to foster interagency collaboration to guide development, availability, and use of seed needed for timely and effective restoration. Reporting progress on the the National Seed Strategy is important to demonstrate effective inter-agency collaboration and achievements; highlight joint problem-solving for natural resource challenges; and highlight effective land management tools to sustain native ecosystems, improve wildlife habitat, promote recovery from natural hazards and other disturbances, and sustain multiple types of land use.

Here are the goals of the report:

  • Summarize the state of the native seed for restoration and plant materials development

  • Show the progress made on a national strategy across various agencies

  • Highlight areas where more work is needed
