By now, you’ve probably heard of the wild-and-crazy-in-your-face wildland restoration movement.
While the term wildland is still used to describe most of the country, this new effort is focusing on small, rural areas.
In fact, one of the pioneers of the movement is the American Wildland Council, which was founded in 1996 and focuses on restoring and preserving wild lands for future generations.
It’s not just a grass-roots organization, either.
Wildlands Council has a team of more than 100 experts working with local and state officials to coordinate the effort, and has established a network of over 60 research centers across the country.
This new breed of wildland conservation has led to the emergence of a new breed in America: small, grassroots organizations like this one.
And it’s led to some serious challenges.
We spoke with two of the most respected experts on the subject, and they offer some tips on how to build successful wildland initiatives.
Find your roots In the United States, we tend to associate the term “wilderness” with pristine landscapes that were untouched by human activities.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean that wildlands are pristine, says Dan O’Malley, a professor of conservation and ecology at Michigan State University.
“In some places, the landscape is just not conducive to a long-term relationship with humans.
And we don’t really know why that is.”
O’Neill, whose research has examined the ecological and human impacts of wilderness, describes this as a form of “inbreeding” that can occur when humans take over the natural world.
“There’s an underlying sense that we’re invading, but we don’s want to,” he says.
“If we want to take over, we have to first take over our own natural environment.
And if that means taking over the entire landscape, that’s a pretty big problem.”
The term “nature reserve” can be a bit of a misnomer.
While there are many different types of wildlands, they typically fall into three broad categories: native grasslands, upland and upland forest.
O’Donnell describes native grassland as being on or near a landscape that is rich in plants and wildlife.
“The more open-pollinated habitats you have, the more diversity there is,” he explains.
“And the more species you have in a habitat, the less species you are exposed to.”
Overnight, native grasses and trees have a chance to establish themselves and establish a permanent population, O’Brien says.
This means that the species that thrive in native grass can thrive in wildlands.
“It’s just like the plants that are naturally in a particular place,” O’Neil says.
In contrast, the forests are typically less open to plant life, he says, which means the land is more likely to be prone to erosion.
This is especially true for grassland, which is where native grass and trees can thrive.
OMalley calls this process “in-breeding.”
The more species that are in a place, the greater chance there is that a species will thrive there.
In the case of wild areas, OMalley says, this can mean a loss of species diversity and the spread of invasive species.
“Because the wildlands we see are usually the most pristine and pristine, we’re not seeing much diversity,” he tells us.
“That can mean that the habitat is more vulnerable to invasive species.”
The problem with this, Ohers says, is that when people go out to take down an invasive species, they’re not always careful about what they do to native plants and animals.
In many cases, it’s just too late to do much about the invasive species before it kills the native species.
In addition, the native plants that live in the areas may not be able to adapt to the changing climate, and the native animals can become a problem for the native wildlife.
This can lead to a breeding ground for invasive species that may be detrimental to native species, Omer says.
But, he adds, “it’s also a huge boon for the species.”
In some cases, a native plant can take over an existing habitat and create a breeding colony.
This would be a bad situation for native wildlife, Oser says.
If there’s a natural habitat for a species, it can’t just be bulldozed out.
Instead, the natural habitat has to be managed, so that the native habitat can take root.
In order to do this, native plants must be removed from the landscape, Omeyer says.
Once the native vegetation is gone, a new habitat can develop.
The solution to this problem, Oman says, can be to “build your own habitat.”
This means planting native trees in the landscape and setting up native wildlife habitats.
In other words, if you don’t have the funds to build your own native habitat, it may be better to create an alternative habitat to your current one.
