Join the New York Invasive Species Research Institute and Ecological Health Network for a State of the Science webinar around the topic of native plant restoration in the Northeast. Featured speakers will include James Aronson and Eve Allen of the Ecological Health Network. James Aronson is a long-time restoration practitioner with four decades of experience in the field, is a Co-Founder of the Ecological Health Network and Emeritus senior scientist at Missouri Botanical Garden. His presentation will cover an overview of where holistic ecological restoration intersects with global efforts to remove and reduce biological invaders with a special focus on the Northeast U.S. and adjacent bioregions south and north. Eve Allen is the Program Director of Northeast Initiatives at Ecological Health Network, where they are working to advance the science and practice of ecological restoration. Eve’s presentation will cover an integrative network approach that is generating solutions to commercial shortages of native seeds to create biodiverse, self-sustaining plant communities. The New York Invasive Species Research Institute is excited to bring together expertise on this topic and discuss a potential path forward to restoration challenges.
