Host: Mandi Hirsch, Sagebrush Collaborative Conservation Specialist, Intermountain West Joint Venture, Lander, WY

Co-presenters: Shawn Conner, Restoration Ecologist, BIO-Logic, Inc., Montrose, CO and Jeremy Maestas, Ecologist, USDA-NRCS, Portland, OR

Description: Wet or mesic habitats are rare but disproportionately important habitats within western rangelands. Gully erosion and channel incision are widespread problems reducing nature resiliency and water storage capacity, which is impacting wildlife and working lands. Simple, low-tech restoration methods using sticks and stones provide effective tools for protection and restoring meadow systems. While there is no shortage of degraded areas that need help across the West, there is a shortage of time and money to address them. In this webinar, Jeremy and Shawn will introduce participants to how to use Bill Zeedyk’s principles of “Reading the Landscape and Thinking Like Water” to recognize and prioritize meadow restoration.

Sponsors: NRCS Working Lands for Wildlife & Intermountain West Joint Venture
