Ecoregions and Ecological Communities in The Capital Region

This event has ended

to (Eastern Time)
Online/Virtual

Public Welcome Free Event Program/Speaker Presentation

Presented by Steve Young, botanist. For native plant gardeners, it is most beneficial to plant the right plant in the right place. There are four ecoregions in the Capital District, each with its own set of conditions that support a distinct set of ecological communities that support a distinct mixture of native plants that require specific conditions to grow. We will look at what constitutes an ecoregion and an ecological community and the plants they contain so you can select the best plants for your situation.

Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
Ecological restoration can be understood as an act of reciprocity, in return for the gifts of the earth. This talk explores the ecological and ethical imperatives of healing the damage we have inflicted on our land and waters. We trace the evolution of restoration philosophy and practice and consider how integration of indigenous knowledge can expand our understanding of restoration from the biophysical to the biocultural. Reciprocal restoration includes not only healing the land but our relationship to land. In healing the land, we are healing ourselves.

Wild Ones is excited to cohost this event with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's Earth Week 2024 and the Wild Ones Fox Valley Chapter.

Members Only Chapter Meeting

Join our leadership team to discuss the direction of the chapter.  These monthly meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM.  It is a great time to present events and opportunities for the chapter.   Ideas such as networking, collaborations, lobbying, advocacy, community science/conservation/restoration projects, fundraising, demonstration gardens, invasive species removals, and any other idea you can think of are welcome.  Contact us if you would like to receive a zoom link to attend this meeting.
