Prevention BMPs for Sierra Nevada Meadow Restoration

This 12-page, easy-to-use guide describes best management practices to prevent weed and pathogen spread while conducting restorations in Sierra Nevada Meadows. We provide guidelines for practitioners that span restoration activities from initial planning to the final clean-up and long-term maintenance phases of restoration. It also includes threat minimization measures for techniques that range from grazing or other fuels management to large-scale stream channel re-contouring projects.
