Digging In: A Guide to Community Based Habitat Restoration
I attended a workshop on community based habitat restoration yesterday in Long Beach, CA, hosted by the Friends of the Colorado Lagoon.
At this occasion I was introduced to a VERY AWESOME resource put together by Kristina Finstad.
Everything is there if you want to gather people around habitat restoration...
"This 164 page guide describes how individuals and organizations can become involved in helping to improve and restore coastal wetlands and other coastal habitat in their communities. The Guide explains the basic steps of information gathering, site selection, project implementation, monitoring, maintenance, and working with volunteers. It includes tips on battling non-natives, as well as propagating and installing native plants."
Enjoy, and be thankful that people like Kristina exist.
