Overview

Members of APNEP’s Restoration Strategies Action Team will pursue collaborative inititatives aligned with the following APNEP Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) actions:

Action C2.1: Facilitate the development and implementation of coordinated landscape-scale hydrological restoration strategies. Much of the lowland agricultural areas are characterized by modified drainage networks that incorporate ditches and pumps. A coordinated strategy is the best way to ensure restoration is accomplished at the system scale.
 
Outputs: Coordinated landscape-scale hydrological restoration strategies
Results: Improved water quality and ecological integrity
 
Action C2.3: Facilitate the hydrologic restoration of floodplains and streams. Floodplain restoration will include restoring wetland function and planting riparian vegetation. Removing channelization and improving stream banks will restore streams that have been altered.
 
Outputs: Floodplain restoration projects
Results: Improved water quality, hydrology, and ecological integrity
 
Action C3.2: Develop and implement a coordinated wetland restoration strategy. APNEP will work with its partners to re-establish wetland hydrology and vegetation at sites where wetlands previously existed. Restoration will aim to improve wetlands in urban as well as rural/agricultural areas, and work will be coordinated with ongoing efforts to maximize output.
 
Outputs: Wetland restoration strategy/ partnership
Results: Improved water quality and ecological integrity
 
Action D1.2: Facilitate efforts to improve collaborations to protect and restore ecosystem processes. Homeowners, farmers, foresters, and businesses control most land in the Albemarle-Pamlico region. The interest and action of private individuals, supported by government expertise and resources, is critical to protect and restore the estuarine ecosystem.
 
Outputs: Workshops and engagement materials on land conservation

Results: Increase in protected lands through easements, better management, or other methods
