Wetlands are critically important-offering solutions to climate change, community resilience, and ecosystem maintenance. Yet restoration projects covering thousands of acres have had mixed success. This session brings you into recent discussions between scientists and practitioners on how to define landscape architects' critical role in improving wetland restoration performance.
Sustainable Development & Design
Health, Safety and Welfare
1) Learn what experts know about wetland-restoration failures and the need to rethink how things are done. 2) Define success objectively to help streamline the process and provide measurable performance metrics. 3) Gain insight into key ecological and design elements for creating realistic and achievable goals, from permitting through performance monitoring. 4) Adapt design methods to create natural systems while recognizing the primary role of ecologists to identify and evaluate standards.
