Seasonal Field Rotations
The habitat restoration schedule for a summer season is usually between March and September. And the winter schedule is usually between September and March.
In 2012, teams of six to seven people increased the treatment area from 69 acres to 116 acres. In 2013, the treatment area was increased to 133 acres. As of September 2014, all vegetated areas across Green Island (188 acres) were incorporated into a rotating treatment schedule that takes 2 to 3 months to complete. Beginning in September 2017, a crew of 8 has been able to decrease that timeframe down to 4 to 6 weeks. This increase in personnel was implemented to prevent Verbesina, Cenchrus and other invasive species from maturing and adding to the seed bank.
