This collaborative project, led by experts on restoration and Garry Oak ecosystems, pulls information together into an easy to read, technically accurate and definitive guide. The chapters cover all aspects of restoration, including how to assess and monitor a site, create a restoration plan, involve community, restore when species at risk are present, and manage invasive species.
Until now, information about how to restore Garry Oak ecosystems has not been readily available. Some information can be found in scientific journals, some in reports and unpublished documents, but much of it has been held in the minds of seasoned restoration practitioners.
The idea for this guide came out of the April 2007 meeting of the Restoration & Management Recovery Implementation Group (RIG) of the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team. Coordinated by Don Eastman and Conan Webb, the hard work of the project team has finally brought this idea to life!
