Planning a restoration begins by becoming familiar with the current conditions of a site and thinking about what might be possible to achieve there. In this course, you’ll simulate the initial steps of planning a restoration project – from gathering background information, to collecting relevant data and observations, and then making sense of the information you’ve gathered to formulate sound restoration goals.

The course covers how to:

  • Gather and analyze data needed for assessing the ecological conditions of degraded sites
  • Diagnose the restoration needs of a site prior to restoration
  • Plan meaningful project goals.

This course is part of a certificate program. Participants who complete the entire course will receive 3.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). 

$375 course fee.
