GOERT has partnered with the Municipality of Saanich for its 2019 Research Conference. The theme Rebirth: restoring landscapes will look at the Garry oak ecosystem as a landscape that has been shaped by its historical context, and how contemporary social priorities are shaping its future.
We’ll present some of the latest research and projects including project updates (restoration on public and private lands), the use of native vegetation in restoration projects, and a look at the recently protected Eagle Heights. There will also be a chance to get out on the land and experience an actively maintained Garry oak ecosystem and learn from those who manage it.
The conference is preceded by a field trip to Trail Island, on Sunday, April 28th. Join botanists Matt Fairbarns and James Miskelly for an afternoon visit to Trial Island, one of the most important hotspots for rare and endangered plants in all of Canada.
