The Baker Wetlands (Douglas County, KS) is a 375 ha (927 ac) site for conservation, research, and education on wetland ecosystems. This study focused on a wetland vegetation restoration in a 49 ha (120 ac) portion of Baker Wetlands. A vegetation assessment was carried out every fifth summer from 1991 to 2011, with a final survey in 2012, to determine the wetland vegetation establishment success of the restoration at the Baker Wetlands. Successful establishment was defined as having a significant increase in percent coverage of plant species classified as obligate wetland, facultative wetland, and facultative after 10 or more years of restoration. Surveys consisted of visually estimating percent coverage of wetland vegetation within 1m2 quadrats. We found a significant increase in the percent coverage of obligate wetland and facultative wetland plants between 1991 and the following years. These results will help guide future restoration efforts at Baker Wetlands.
