One of the main activities undertaken by the FSLSB is the restoration and maintenance of serpentine barrens. The lack of man-made disturbance, particularly wildfires, since the mid-Twentieth Century has resulted in the succession of many mid-Atlantic serpentine grasslands and savannas into thicket and forest, threatening the many rare and disjunct members of these communities. Reclaiming these grasslands is usually one of our primary restoration objectives. However, we also seek to conserve serpentine thicket plants and animals and maintain a mosaic of community types.

We are working to make available our protocols for carrying out serpentine restoration work with volunteer labor. Stay tuned! If you want to learn more about them now, you can view a recorded webinar given by the FSLSB:
