Coming up this Thursday, June 6, from 6 to 8 p.m., the University of Washington Restoration Ecology Network (UW-REN) invites you to join in their 14th Annual Capstone Symposium and Celebration!
Multidisciplinary teams from three UW campuses have been working for eight months to restore damaged ecosystems for community-based clients in the Puget Sound area. At the event, capstone participants will lead a poster and multimedia presentation of the restoration projects they designed, organized and installed, and you’ll be able to examine the innovative, science-based approaches our students developed and used. Their projects are part of an award-winning capstone program that has involved more than 450 students, 38 community partners and 84 restoration projects during the past 14 years.
Opening remarks will begin promptly at 6 p.m. at the Douglas Research Conservatory Greenhouse at the Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st St., Seattle, WA 98105); see map below.
No RSVP required, and refreshments will be provided. So come learn about all of the amazing restoration work your friends and colleagues have carried out this year!
If you have any questions, please contact Lindsey Hamilton, symposium coordinator.
