University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration are pleased to announce the 2019 Ecological Restoration Symposium
Restoration Beyond the Reference System:
Cost: $95, lunch and reception included
Remote attendance: $80 (group rates available)
Reduced rate available for full-time students and corps members
Restoration practitioners are challenged by projects in which recovery toward a reference model community is not attainable. In these cases, it becomes advantageous to restore ecosystem function, rather than a historical suite of species. In this symposium, we will look at restoring ecosystems beyond reference conditions − from the theoretical background, practical application, and ethical dimensions that practitioners need to understand in order to restore ecological communities and functions across a complex and ever-changing landscape.
This symposium is co-sponsored by the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration and is part of a collaboration to provide continuing education for restoration ecology practitioners. Come to ask questions, to hear your colleagues’ stories of their successes and challenges, and to learn about cutting-edge approaches being used to improve restoration project success.
