Learning how to return function and diversity to degraded habitats is one of the fundamental challenges of our time. In this class, we'll collaborate on planning an ecological restoration project. Beginning with a baseline site assessment, we'll determine restoration goals, plan the removal of unwanted species and establishment of others, and set up a monitoring protocol to gauge the long-term success of our efforts.
The class will take place outside; we'll be restoring a forested area at Duke Farms using the full spectrum of tools and plant materials available to contemporary land stewards. Fundamental concepts in restoration practice, as well as recommended resources, will be covered in depth. The class will be taught by Jared Rosenbaum of Wild Ridge Plants, LLC, in cooperation with stewardship staff from Duke Farms.
Duke Farms serves as a model of environmental stewardship and inspires visitors to become informed stewards of the land. It is a place of education, enjoyment and research that enhances the environmental health of the region.
