Description: Over the past five years, BLM has worked in partnership to disseminate information on plant conservation, native plant materials development, pollinators and the National Seed Strategy to support persons engaged in identifying, protecting, managing, and studying natural areas and biological diversity across landscapes and ecosystems. The National Seed Strategy calls for Federal and non-Federal partners to promote the development, production, and use of native plants in restoration projects across the country. Goal 1 of the National Seed Strategy calls for a national assessment of native seed needs and capacities. This partner would liaise with natural area managers to ensure their needs are included. Goal 3 of the National Seed Strategy is development of decision tools for managers and this partnership would translate science into on-the ground information through a webinar series. Goal 4 of the National Seed Strategy is communication and this partner would publish a quarterly journal with scientific articles on research and stewardship activities in natural areas, including ecological monitoring, inventorying techniques, restoration and native seed.
