Collaborative Conservation in Energy and Transportation and the Race to Save the Monarch - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)
The striking declines in insect populations, in addition to many other species, warrants an “all hands on deck” approach to conservation. Since 2015, the Rights-of-Way as Habitat Working Group has brought together organizations from across the U.S. and Canada to promote habitat on energy and transportation lands, such as rights-of-way (ROW). Beginning in 2018, a group of 40+ partners from across the energy and transportation sectors in the U.S., in collaboration with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, developed the first nationwide Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances (CCAA) to promote voluntary conservation of monarch butterfly habitat on energy and transportation lands. This presentation will introduce the Monarch CCAA and what it means for conservation.
Growing PHYTO: Integrating Phytotechnologies in the Public Realm to Mitigate Polluted Sites - 1.25 PDH (LA CES/HSW)
Phytotechnology utilizes plants to remediate groundwater and soils. Commonly the focus of obscure sites, recent phytotechnology projects have moved into cities increasing plant performance to sequester carbon and reduce the heat-island effect. This session explores the budding relationship between scientists and designers by looking at case studies that integrate phytotechnologies into public landscapes.
Building a Worker-Owned Practice: Cooperatives, Stewardship, and Collective Design - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)
