Big Seeds: The Land Restoration School

October 21, 2022

10:30 am – 11:30 am
Location: Online

Ecological restoration sits at the intersection of academic ecology and the practice of land stewardship, especially when we look at the challenge and necessity of training the next generation of restorationists. The Land Restoration School explored that intersection by bringing together a range of theoreticians and practitioners in a bold attempt to launch the careers of ambitious and dedicated individuals who will form a community for the future. School founding co-directors Nancy Aten and Dan Collins with school curriculum chair Chris Young will discuss the framework for the eight-to-twelve week residential academic program in the principles, practice, and planning of ecological restoration for degraded lands; lessons learned in the first year of operation; and investing in big seeds.
