Restoration Workshop in the Cowichan Valley – A chance to learn technical skills feel a part of nature, your community, and make a difference.
About this Event
Date: November 6th & 7th
By renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment we will work as a group to learn the skills and transfer them into a real restoration project!
Our goal is to bring together young people who enjoy restoration work, are already working in the field of restoration, or are excited to learn more about it.
However no experience is necessary for this course, just a willingness to learn.
Our teacher, David Polster, is a plant ecologist with over 35 years of experience in vegetation studies, reclamation and invasive species management. He graduated from the University of Victoria with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in 1975 and a Master of Science degree in 1977. He has developed a wide variety of reclamation techniques for mines, industrial developments and steep/unstable slopes as well as techniques for the re-establishment of riparian and aquatic habitats. He has authored numerous papers and teaches graduate level courses on these topics.
We will be outside and you will be provided with your own set of tools to use. We will be practicing physical distancing. Wear sturdy boots and dress for the weather.
