CSR’s Wyoming Crew recently finished 3 acres of broadcast seeding, 2,250 linear feet of sediment and debris cleanup along erosion wattles, and installed 300 feet of fencing for the Whitney Canyon Gas Plant near Evanston, Wyoming.
The WY Game and Fish Restoration planting project is now complete. The planting of 7,000 sagebrush seedlings (grown by Westscape Nursery in MT) will provide a seed source for the natural re-establishment of sagebrush to benefit pronghorn, mule deer and sage grouse.
Sagebrush planting project for the Wyoming Game and Fish: 7,000 sagebrush seedlings installed in 94 different planting locations within a 50,000 acre wildfire area southeast of Worland, WY.
Each planting area has an 8 X 8 ft. long, 48 in. panel around the sagebrush to reduce predation on the young sagebrush plants. Since the location is in a cheatgrass and other non-native vegetation dominated landscape, weed barrier fabric was also placed in each planting area.
This planting project will provide a seed source for the natural re-establishment of sagebrush to benefit pronghorn, mule deer and sage grouse.

CSR Inc recently finished clearing Salt Cedar (Tamarisk) from 50 acres in the Shell Valley – Red Gulch Drainage area, near Greybull WY. Many parts of this project involved very difficult terrain, including a ravine that reached only 60 feet in width. Although getting equipment into the project area proved a challenge, the CSR team persevered.
This summer we will revisit this stream and chemically treat the re-growth. It is important to control the growth of Salt Cedar as they can be extremely detrimental to native habitat.
The CSR, Inc. Wyoming Restoration team has finished native seeding on two sites located near Shoshoni, WY.
Brushing project in Greybull, WY: Restoration crews are clearing invasive Salt Cedar, also known as Tamarisk. After the initial cutting, we will return to apply herbicide to the regrowth in the summer. Regular stops for maintenance on the skid steer are made in order to keep the equipment running top-notch. Keep up the great work guys!
