Link to Symposium Information
Numerous management guidelines suggest incorporating climate change effects into planning and design of ecological restoration projects. This provides practitioners with challenges of balancing multiple sometimes conflicting goals in actionable restoration design. Practitioners learn by case studies, the application of ecological science and study. This symposium will provide examples of how general guidelines for climate change adaptation were incorporated into existing projects in the Pacific Northwest. While introducing their local restoration projects, practitioners will highlight which pertinent questions of restoration and adaptation they have addressed and conclude with take-home messages for the practitioner community on how to transfer their experience to related settings.
Co-hosted by University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration.
