Intro to Ecological Restoration (Online and in-person)

Discover the principles and practice of ecosystem restoration. Ecological restoration is a process for improving the quality of our regional forests, water, air, and biodiversity. Engage with experts in natural resource conservation and fellow participants and volunteers to challenge your assumptions and have conversations about ecological restoration. Explore what we mean when we say ecological restoration, examples in concept and practice, and discuss the implications of this work. The program will include both online learning modules and in-person discussions.

Instructor: Kurt Dreisilker
