Before Go Zero Planting

open field

Looks like a pretty boring open field, doesn't it? It's not! It's actually the location of a Go Zero® forest restoration project at Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge. We've worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who chose the location, to restore more than 775 acres of native oak and hickory trees. This open field will one day have a forest of trees that will provide habitat to migratory birds and other wildlife. Click through to see the "After" photo.
