Meadowlark Prairie Restoration
In 2012, the Friends expanded their restoration efforts of Mt. Pisgah’s rare prairie and oak savanna habitat in the “Meadowlark Prairie,” a 265-acre site on the east side of Lane County’s Buford Park.

This new collaborative project with Lane County is removing blackberry, Scot’s broom and other invasive exotics. The Friends will continue implementing ecological burns, in partnership with Oregon Department of Forestry, at this location. These restoration actions will be followed by sowing native grass and wildflower seed to restore a diverse native plant community.
