This webinar will cover revegetation techniques from a systems approach. Specific topics presented include:
- SEEDS: Seed collection basics, identification of remnant ecotypic plant populations, and the pros & cons of dormancy in a restoration setting.
- REVEGETATION STRATEGIES: The ins and outs of developing seed mixes, plant palettes, and integrated revegetation designs. Design for moisture gradients, including the identification of a hydrologic point of reference. The influence of restoration goals, budget, and other factors that drive revegetation designs as much as site conditions.
- SOIL AMENDMENTS & MULCH: No revegetation design shall occur without thinking soils & mulch. The driving factors for integrating mulch, soil amendments, and revegetaton design will be covered.
- POST-FIRE RESTORATION STRATEGIES: Case studies and research results following the 2012 High Park fire. Integrating lessons learned into future post-fire restoration designs.
This webinar is designed for those with a beginning to intermediate knowledge of revegetation/restoration techniques and strategies.
