Funding Detail Description

The Plant Conservation and Restoration Management Program was created in response to large-scale wildfires in the Western U.S. Because of a lack of native seed, in 2001 Congress directed the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to establish a native plant material program and recommended that federal and non-federal partners coordinate efforts through the Plant Conservation Alliance established in 1994 (House Report 106-914). The Plant Conservation Program provides leadership in identifying, maintaining, and restoring Western native plant communities on public lands. In 2019, the Idaho BLM is focusing work in areas to facilitate meeting the priorities of the Administration, Secretary, Congressional appropriations, and the Bureau. Accessibility to native plant materials is crucial for the restoration of keystone wildlife habitats. Healthy habitats will lead to expanded recreational access, and hunting and fishing opportunities (Secretarial Order 3347 and 3356), improved habitat for western big-game winter range and migration corridors (Secretarial Order 3362), and recovery of lands damaged by wildfire (Secretarial Order 3372).
