The Art and Science behind Restoring and Managing Appalachian Audubon's Trout Run Nature Preserve
This presentation will explore the many aspects of the effort to restore and manage Appalachian Audubon Society’s Trout Run Nature Preserve located in Upper Allen Township, Cumberland County. The Trout Run wetlands rose to prominence after a breeding population of state endangered sedge wrens was found there in the early 1990s. This presentation will discuss in detail AAS's past and current efforts to restore Trout Run's degraded ecosystems and ensure that the native species inhabiting them have a secure future. Topics covered will include invasive species management, riparian buffer planting success and failure, drone mapping, community engagement efforts, and possibility of using prescribed fire to enhance native plant communities.
