Ensuring a ready supply of native plant materials.

As part of our ecological restoration activities, we are able to aid America’s ongoing battle against wetland and land loss at scale. RES’ wetland, stream, coastal, prairie, estuary, marsh, and barrier restoration processes start at the source—with seeds.

RES leads the way in science-based native plant propagation. We offer the highest quality native seed and plants as well as the expertise to use and care for them.
