Vegetating with Native Grasses in Northeastern North America
Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) of the United States Department of Agriculture jointly released Revegetating with Native Grasses in 1995. That manual fulfilled a long recognized need to summarize the lessons both agencies had learned about successfully planting native grasses in the western prairie/plains region of the continent. The development of that information had begun with the establishment of the NRCS - formerly The Soil Conservation Service - in the dust bowl days of the 1930s.
NRCS and Ducks Unlimited have collaborated again to produce this reference: Vegetating with Native Grasses in Northeastern North America. It is intended to meet the information needs of resource conservation professionals in government and in nongovernmental organizations, as well as landowners and operators throughout the northeastern United States and eastern Canada. This document was originally published many years ago; while the represented data is still relevant and applicable, the original Senior Authors have both retired. The appendices in this publication have been updated to reflect up-to-date available varieties and
USDA-NRCS Plant Materials Program would like to thank Ducks Unlimited Canada for the use of this manual and permitting the posting of this publication to the Plant Materials Program website.
