Regulatory agencies often require specific revegetation benchmarks as a component of a construction project’s environmental permitting for soil stabilization, scenic viewshed requirements, stream bank stabilization, etc. Past practices had mostly focused on the use of quickly germinating annual plants that may or may not have been native to the project area. Over the past two decades, our unit has established strong partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies to de-couple the revegetation activities from the construction contracts of their projects. Here I will discuss our unique partnerships that have greatly increased the use of native plants, collected at hyper-local levels, to revegetate highly disturbed sites. Through this innovation, we facilitate both resilient native plant communities and regulatory needs. I will provide three project examples of how, with a little creativity, native revegetation efforts can work together with regulatory requirements.
