The Little Manatee River Corridor Plan assesses the current habitats and restoration opportunities within the 7,360-acre Little Manatee River Nature Preserve in Hillsborough County. Ecologists mapped and measured the health of native forested uplands, coastal wetlands, intertidal and open water areas, as well as negative impacts associated with agricultural production, non-native vegetation, and changes to historic water flow. Dividing the large preserve into 10 management areas, the holistic plan recommends specific restoration activities for each area, including how to best manage non-native plant species over the next 20+ years.
