Sandplain Grasslands

Sandplain grasslands are exemplary plant biodiversity hotspots in the northeast and require careful management. Ecologist Christopher Neill of the Woodwell Climate Research Center will lead a walk through Cape Cod's largest sandplain grassland. Crane Wildlife Management Area is a prominent example of successful efforts to protect and expand sandplain grassland with management by fire, mowing, and mechanical clearing of woody vegetation. Neill will detail his and his colleagues' recent efforts to create a Sandplain Grassland Network of managers and researchers to share experiences, case studies, and management techniques.
