Restoring America's streams and rivers: A promise or reality?
Explorer Lecture Series event at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History with speaker Dr. Margaret Palmer, Professor and Director, National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, University of Maryland.
Streams and rivers provide drinking water, fisheries, recreational opportunities and many more societal benefits, yet they are the most severely degraded of all ecosystem types on Earth. The science and practice of ecological restoration provides hope that they can be healed and the resources they provide recovered. What approaches are being taken to restore these systems? How do these approaches vary across urban, agricultural and mined landscapes, and are they resulting in the outcomes hoped for? What are the social, political and ecological dynamics at play?
Co-sponsored by the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.
