This course explores a place-based approach to environmental conservation, using the Niagara River Watershed as the study area. The approach is based on the instructor’s experience working with scientists, agencies, conservation organizations, communities and property owners on conserving and restoring water quality, ecological function and wildlife habitat. We will use a variety of methods and tools to identify, assess, protect and restore ecological resiliency in the context of pressures like climate change, sprawl, new energy demands, and invasive species.
