VMN CE Webinar: Why have clumps when you can have superclumps
From Michelle Prysby
Description: Lessons learned and practical tips in 15+ years of restoring Virginia's forests. For more information on the mini-forest technique, check out this blog post by our presenter. This webinar is supported by the Urban and Community Forestry grant program from the US Forest Service and Virginia Department of Forestry.
Presenter: Meghan Noe Fellows has been a practicing restoration ecologist in diverse ecosystems such as salt marshes, sub-tropical glades and hammocks and mid-atlantic meadows and forests. The complexity of establishing forests that last and build captured her attention and led to developing the technique lovingly referred to as the "Superclump" (aka mini-forest or nucleation). Meghan is interested in how restoration can lead to a holistic uplift of ecosystem services, including both ecological and social benefits. She now works in southern Delaware, turning ag fields into future forests, one superclump at a time. When preservation and conservation can't get you there - who are you going to call? a restoration ecologist!
