Cheap, Easy, and Old School Techniques to Reestablish Plant Communities
October 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Ecological restoration – the process of assisting in the recovery of damaged habitats – is hard, and many researchers are trying to find technologies that enhance restoration outcomes. While these efforts are laudable, many of the most helpful current technologies are expensive and difficult for most people to use.
Fortunately, there are lots of low-tech options that require minimal funding and technological expertise, and that have been used by land managers for decades. In this talk, restoration ecologist and UA professor Dr. Elise Gornish will share these cheap and easy “old school” techniques – from seed balls to rock lunas – for restoring disturbed ecosystems.
Want to get the children in your life involved in healing the environment? Dr. Gornish isn’t just a researcher – she also wrote the first-ever kids’ book on ecological restoration! Copies will be available for purchase at the talk.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
*The event is free but space is limited and registration is required to attend. Masks Suggested in the building. The talk will be live-streamed to our YouTube channel for those not able to attend in person.
