He will talk about what we have learned about cottonwood forest decline, exotic species incursions, and a benchmark case study, the Albuquerque Overbank Project, that looked at plant responses to a “natural-processes approach” to river restoration. He will then follow with a discussion of a vision for the future for the river ecosystem in the proposed Middle Rio Grande Conservation Action Plan.

There are two attendance options:

  • In-Person: UNM Continuing Ed Building, Room C, 7:00 PM (1634 University Blvd NE) Masks are optional. Food and drink are welcome.
