Abstract: Since the 1970s, the use of native plants has often been suggested as a potential answer to problems associated with re-vegetation of disturbed areas. From April, 1996 to March, 2001, Forest Renewal British Columbia provided the funding for this long-term applied research program to determine the utility of native Vancouver Island grasses in restoration of disturbed areas, and ultimately provide a source of native grass seed for use on Vancouver Island and the adjacent mainland coast. This report is the annual progress report for the 2005/06 fiscal year, and the summary report for the entire ten-year program. The report describes the activities undertaken from March 1, 1996 to February 28, 2006. These consisted of fill planting, maintenance and seed harvesting at the Seed Increase Nursery; evaluation of the existing trial plots which had not been previously evaluated for five years; assessment, maintenance and harvesting of the Seed Production plots; cleaning and weighing the seed harvested from the Nursery and Seed Production plots; and various extension activities. As the program was in its final year, no new trial, demonstration or operational sites were established in 2005. Manivalde Vaartnou.
