UPDATE: the Zoom recording of the Small-scale ecosystem restoration webinar is now available.

…through invasive plant control, wildlife habitat enhancement, and wildfire risk reduction.

Friday, February 25, 7 pm, Zoom

Mark your calendar for this Zoom event with Chris Drake, ecologist and owner/operator of Coast Alive Stewardship Services, based on Salt Spring Island.

Join Chris as he discusses land stewardship and practical techniques for small-scale ecosystem restoration. Combining several aspects of stewardship through carbon, water and nutrient sequestration can be an effective and efficient way to increase landscape health and resilience. With examples from real projects, Chris will give tips and tricks on how to create and carry out a multi-year environmental stewardship plan that brings results. Your non-human neighbours will thank you!

Members may have seen the popular presentation Chris did a year ago, and with this new presentation he will once again entertain and inform. There will be plenty of time for questions at the end. Chris will be following up with a hands-on Gabriola workshop on April 23 in which he will demonstrate some of the techniques. Stay tuned for more information.

Members will be sent a zoom link for the event. Non-members can obtain the link by emailing invasives@galtt.ca.
