Friends and affiliates of the GCC are invited to join a new Restoration Ecology Working Group forming this semester. The group will meet virtually every other week, starting the week of September 7, and is open to anyone interested in collaborating on interdisciplinary projects related to restoration ecology. We will spend the Fall term reading literature, establishing rapport, and identifying targets for future work together. Our open-ended list of focal topics currently includes:

  • What to expect from the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030)

  • Community participation in ecological restoration projects

  • COVID impacts on ecological restoration

  • Ecological restoration as a public health intervention

  • Creating more dynamic reference models for Virginia restoration
