Sensitive Plants

Many sensitive plants are difficult to identify, have short windows when it is appropriate to conduct surveys, and may prefer locations that are not very accessible.  These conditions can make planning a project around required stipulations challenging. Grouse Mountain’s botanists and rangeland specialists will work with you and the appropriate agencies to determine proper protocols and timings for individual species and develop work plans to streamline your project’s completion.
