New Video Highlights Climate-Informed Project in West Virginia

The Lambert Run strip coal mine left behind a legacy of heavily compacted soils, interrupted hydrology, and non-native vegetation. The Monongahela National Forest and many regional partners are working together to improve watershed conditions, provide wildlife habitat, restore native vegetation using climate-informed restoration activities. A new case study and accompanying short video describe their progress and successes using the Central Appalachians vulnerability assessment and Adaptation Workbook.
