Natural areas support a wide range and diversity of flora and fauna. Without proper stewardship of land and water ecosystems, invasive species invade the natural area, thereby creating ecological imbalances. Stewarding native landscapes is about understanding and fostering the environmental conditions in which these ecosystems thrive. At Conservation Land Stewardship, we promote self-sustaining, self-replicating systems.
CLS dedicates professional staff and field crews to year-round monitoring and management of native plant communities, utilizing sustainable and responsible approaches to stewardship. We have learned through experience that intelligent land stewardship deserves thoughtful attention to the nuances of every environmental condition, participant, and member of a living system. Using sustainable and responsible approaches to stewardship, starting with a solid management plan, CLS can perform a variety of management techniques, including:
- Field and brush mowing
- Invasive tree and shrub clearing
- Prescribed burning
- Herbicide application
- Selective invasive species mowing
- Seed collection and installation
