To build resilient landscapes, we need genetically diverse plants based on local ecotypes . In this 2-hour webinar, participants will receive training that explores the concept of resilience with regard to landscape design. By replicating plant community dynamics and structure we are better able to strengthen long-term resilience for plants, people, and wildlife. Participants will incorporate the latest policies, regulations, and best management practices (BMPs) to implement strategies to foster robust and adaptable landscapes. Case studies will help highlight how we create sustainable, resilient, and enduring landscapes.
