Symposium Announcement

Program Agenda

An extensive network of professional restoration practitioners are actively engaged in restoring habitats in the Pacific Northwest. In the Ecological Restoration Symposium, we will present case studies to explore lessons learned from recent projects, enhance participants’ understanding and knowledge of best practices, and stimulate thinking about alternative approaches to tackle thorny problems. Come to ask questions, to hear your colleagues’ stories of their successes and challenges, and to learn about cutting-edge approaches being used to improve restoration project success. This symposium is co-sponsored by the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration and is part of a new collaboration to provide continuing education for restoration ecology practitioners.

Speakers include:

  • Kern Ewing, Professor | University of Washington School of Environmental and Forest Sciences
  • Joshua Chenoweth, Restoration Ecologist | Olympic National Park
  • Rodney Pond, Executive Director | Sound Salmon Solutions
  • Beth leDoux, Snoqualmie Watershed Technical Coordinator | Snoqualmie/Skykomish
