This series will explore the complexities and realities of “restoring” forests and other ecosystems to conditions more in keeping with historic conditions. We’ll consider ecological limitations and desired conditions; implications of long term fire suppression, invasive species, and changing climate conditions; and how our objectives and perceptions influence potential management actions. This series is not about telling you what’s best, but rather to get us all thinking about how we can promote resiliency in the landscapes we collectively steward.

Each session includes approximately 60 minutes of web-based presentation, with additional time for group interaction. We’ll make use of Zoom Q&A and Chat features, and experiment with some open mic opportunities.

Register once to attend any or all of the webinars. Once registered you'll receive the Zoom link and connection instructions.
