Caring for Shrub-Steppe Lands

Our Shrub-Steppe Restoration Guide is for anyone who lives on or cares for shrub-steppe lands – those semi-arid hillsides and plateaus dominated by perennial grasses and shrubs like bitterbrush or sage. It provides guidance on protecting and restoring shrub-steppe habitat on a small scale, strategies for weed control, and ways to rehabilitate the land after disturbances like new driveways, septic fields, and homesites. Pick up a free copy at our office in downtown Winthrop, or email us to mail one to you.
