June 6, 2023

11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Online

The fourth and final course in the Ecological Restoration series focuses on installing the right plant in the right place using the right installation techniques for specific site conditions. The instructor will cover planting strategies for species diversity, habitat for pollinators and native wildlife species, trail management, aesthetics, ethnobotanical and cultural uses, local food systems, resilience, and crime prevention through environmental design.

This class is part IV of a four-part series, Foundational Concepts and Implementation Essentials for Resilient, Inclusive Landscapes - covering the fundamental principles of ecological restoration and best practices for applying those principles in our increasingly dynamic world. The series is grounded in case studies of ongoing wetland, forest, and prairie restoration projects at Juanita Bay, Juanita Beach, Totem Lake and South Norway Hill parks in Kirkland. Attendance to other parts of the series is encouraged, but not required.
