Climate Change Challenge: less water, worse droughts

Grant Award: $97,135; Year Awarded: 2013

The L-A-D Foundation will implement prescribed fire treatments for shortleaf pine woodlands on 300 acres to adaptively restore and maintain a community type that is projected to do well under predicted future climate conditions. Through initiation of prescribed fire treatments on a 1,600-acre expanse of igneous and dolomite glades and woodlands with high natural integrity, this project will enhance the capacity of glade endemic species to adapt.
