|Feb 19, 2013||British Columbia||Howard Johnson Hotel, 4670 Elk Lake Dr, Victoria, BC||Vancouver Island Section Technical Luncheon - 12:00 noon - 1:45 pm|
Dave Polster, M.Sc., R.P. Bio., will show how natural processes can be applied to the restoration of sites that humans have disturbed. This talk will look at common constraints/barriers to ecological recovery - erosion, competition, compaction, low nutrients, etc. - and how natural systems solve these problems. Soil bioengineering techniques for the treatment of landslides, steep, unstable and/or eroding sites will be presented as a means of integrating steep and/or unstable slopes into these natural processes.
