A native plant restoration program at the Vaseux-Bighorn National Wildlife Area included 4 treatments: (1) collection and hand broadcast of native herb and shrub seed; (2) salvage and transplant of native perennial grasses, herbs, and shrubs; (3) hydroseeding of native grasses; and (4) application of microbiotic crust. Early monitoring identified successful re-establishment techniques for many native species and a list of herbs and shrubs that should be considered for dryland native seed mixes.
