Below, a picture sequence showing positive change on a few of our field sites—change made possible by our extremely generous donors. Restoring forest and other native plant communities is a gradual process, but maybe not quite as slow as you might think!
The same area in 2015. It has been planted with native Hispaniolan pine.
A barren, eroding slope at the Meadowood Recreation Area on the Mason Neck Peninsula, in 2008.
The same area in 2011; it has been restored with a range of native meadow and forest plants.
