Fort Laramie National Historic Site (FOLA) plays a vital role in
protecting and managing some of the last remnants of native
mixed-grass prairie in the region. The Northern Great Plains
Inventory & Monitoring Network (NGPN) surveyed 6 long-term
monitoring plots in FOLA in 2012 as part of an effort to better
understand the condition of plant communities in the park. We
measured plant diversity and cover, estimated tree and shrub
density, looked for the presence of exotic species that are of
concern to park management, and evaluated the amount of human and
natural disturbance at all plots. This effort was the second year
in a multiple-year venture to document the current status and
long-term trends in plant communities in FOLA. At the end of five
years, there will be an in-depth report describing the status of
the plant community. In this report, we provide a simple summary of
our results from sampling in 2012.
