This interdisciplinary program is a gathering for all those involved in the various phases of urban restoration projects, providing an opportunity to discuss some of the unique challenges and strategies involved in the planning, design, construction and care of restoration projects within high density urban areas. Presenters will focus on challenges and opportunities that arise when managed natural areas are located in densely populated areas with many built environment interfaces, broadly varied stakeholders and multiple land uses.

This year’s program focus on native plant selection, use and stewardship; traditional ecological knowledge and management practices; and fine tuning native plant care practices to better meet the functions and challenges of urban natural area plantings. Attendees will learn about new findings and approaches and hear about case studies with actionable takeaways that can be implemented in their own work. Join us for this rare opportunity to exchange information across the mix of professions responsible for creating and maintaining urban natural areas. More information
