The Mission Restoration Project

The Challenge

When current and historical conditions in the Mission Project area were compared, it was found that ecosystem health and resiliency have declined. The areas identified to build a more resilient ecosystem are hydrologic function and aquatic habitat, soil productivity, vegetation composition and structure, wildlife habitat, sensitive plants and unique habitats, as well as wildfire hazards and transportation problems. 

The Solution

The project uses results of the Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) tools to identify vegetation, wildlife, and aquatic restoration; and wildfire hazard reduction needs at the stand and landscape level in the 50,200 acre project area.
