Event description

Description

SYNOPSIS:

Opportunities exist to conserve biodiversity in cities and neighborhoods. This workshop introduces participants to the key principles and practices required to conserve biodiversity across cities, both for green infrastructure development and retrofitting areas. Participants will also learn about an online evaluation tool, called “Building for Birds.” This tool allows decision makers to manipulate amounts of forest fragments (urban/rural) and tree canopy (in residential areas) and determine the best designs for conserving bird habitat. In addition, participants will learn about strategies to protect birds from collisions with glass, trends in urban forest canopy in Los Angeles, and resources to understand patterns of bird diversity across the City.


WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES WILL PROVIDE:

i. Information and resources on key principles and practices required to conserve biodiversity and natural resources during design, construction, and post-construction phases of development.

ii. Information about how to use an online tool to evaluate different landscape design scenarios and impacts on bird habitat during the breeding and migration season.

iii. An overview of strategies and policies to reduce accidental bird mortality at windows.

iv. An introduction to patterns of bird diversity in the City of Los Angeles.

v. Trends in urban canopy in the City of Los Angeles.
