Ecology and Restoration of Garry Oak Ecosystems
Royal Roads University, Continuing Studies
April 29th, April 30th, May 6th
Facilitators: Kristen and James Miskelly
oak ecosystems are among the most endangered habitats in Canada –
reduced to less than 5% of their original range. Remaining areas are
often degraded by invasive species and other stressors. Restoration can
aid the recovery of these special places and provide a pathway for
positive connections between nature and human communities. This course
examines the ecology, plant identification, plants, and natural history
of Garry oak ecosystems. You’ll learn field-tested practical techniques
for enhancing degraded areas and methods for converting fields and lawns
to native meadow. Field trips included.
