About This Project

Grand Teton National Park

In 2020, Fred Phillips Consulting was retained by the U.S. National Park Service to perform harvesting of native plant seed in Grand Teton National Park. The most recent harvest included Ipomopsis aggregata, Poa secunda, Pseudoroegneria spicata, Eriogonum umbellatum, and Linum lewisii. The harvested seed will be used for habitat restoration for the distinctive native sage grouse bird, a species which has suffered habitat loss due to climate change and human encroachment and alteration of their habitat.


The firm’s three-man harvesting crew camped for two weeks in the park to collect seed, experiencing all Grand Teton up close and personal: Bison crossing the road, pronghorn antelope, and curious bull moose investigating the camp grounds.
