About this Event

Where?

Day 1 online, using Zoom, focusing on theory (3-5pm)

Day 2 will be spent in the field at Stolz Bluff (9-3pm)

Ages? Youth 15-30

This is a 1.5 day workshop to learn and refine skills in the field of Ecological Restoration. By renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment we will work as a group to learn the skills and transfer them into a real restoration project!

The goal is to bring together young people who are already working in the field of restoration or are excited to learn more about it. No experience is necessary for this course.

The first day will be spent on Zoom setting the context. The second day we will travel to a field site (likely Stoltz Bluffs) and take part in making a difference in our home watershed and learning proper techniques.

Our teacher, David Polster, is a plant ecologist with over 35 years of experience in vegetation studies, reclamation and invasive species management. He graduated from the University of Victoria with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in 1975 and a Master of Science degree in 1977. He has developed a wide variety of reclamation techniques for mines, industrial developments and steep/unstable slopes as well as techniques for the re-establishment of riparian and aquatic habitats. He has authored numerous papers and teaches graduate level courses on these topics.

Ages: Aimed at youth ages 15-30

Cost: $25 per person (let us know if you need a bursary to participate) This includes access to David Polster's workbook.
