Working Together to Restore the Desert

Detailed Description

The USGS RAMPS program's RestoreNet experiment works to strengthen land treatment, restoration, and reclamation activity across the Southwestern Deserts. In this photo, flowering plants that survived one year after installation will reproduce seeds and hopefully spread over time to improve habitat for pollinators and other animals. The RestoreNet project is an example of co-produced science, where land managers and scientists work together to design the experiment,  interpret results, and create science delivery products that are useful for land managers working to improve the condition of the land.
