UW Restoration Ecology Network (UW-REN) capstone program
provides an opportunity for organizations engaged in restoration
to have restoration projects designed
and implemented by teams of 4 to 6 upper-level (junior,
senior, graduate) students. Student teams, with faculty
and teaching assistant oversight, work with a client to
design and implement a restoration project that meets the
goals and approval of the client within the ecological constraints
of the site and resources (funds, materials) available.
This includes the development of a clear and reasonable
plan for maintenance and monitoring of the project after
the involvement of the student team is terminated (at the
end of the academic year, usually the second week of June).
While one of the goals of this capstone is to successfully
implement a restoration for the client, it is critical to
recognize that this is an academic exercise with a central
goal of student education. Please follow the links below for more information.
