"CASRI aims to move forest or wetland vegetation and other natural processes back onto a course of development and function that existed prior to the severe logging and associated fires that threw the ecosystem off course," says Elizabeth Byers, project ecologist with the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
In 2012 alone, CASRI partners raised $725,800 for on-the-ground projects, logged over 2,000 volunteer hours spent planting 34,275 native tree seedlings on roughly 206 acres (80 ha)--bringing the total acres planted since 2006 to 750 (300 ha).
The CASRI's commitment to the long-term conservation of the red spruce-northern hardwood ecosystem in the states of West Virginia and Virginia has been effective as evidenced by the proposed delisting of the West Virginia northern flying squirrel from the list of federally endangered species.
