Dryland restoration faces challenges from heat, drought, and unpredictable rainfall, that are increasingly common and severe due to climate change. Land managers need information about successful seed-based restoration techniques and seed mixes that are not widely available to increase restoration success. Researchers from the US Geological Survey (USGS) and partner universities are working with land managers on a network of field trials called “RestoreNet”. RestoreNet tests seedbased restoration techniques and mixes across the southwestern US, including the Colorado Plateau, and shares findings and best practices with restoration practitioners.
