Description

This webinar highlights ecological restoration planning/design principles and guidelines drawn from the "Successful Ecological Restoration" Landscape Architecture Technical Information Series report (ASLA 2008) and other recent publications. Important ecological restoration issues relevant to designers throughout the world will be addressed by Keith Bowers, who has led work on ecological restoration and conservation planning/design projects across the U.S. and has helped guide the Society for Ecological Restoration for many years.

Learning Objectives:

  • Helps participants appreciate the complexity of restoring ecosystems in urban settings, and enables designers to develop meaningful ecological restoration goals, objectives, and performance criteria.
  • Provides guidance for working with local stakeholders on urban ecological restoration design projects and in facilitating planning/design efforts to create more sustainable urban systems.
  • Provides examples of designs that seek to integrate economic, aesthetic, socio-cultural, and ecological perspectives (including water quality and ecosystem conservation) into local and regional systems.
