This course entails student teams identifying sites on which to focus for the two-course series, as well as developing detailed site assessments and restoration goals/objectives.Projects must be approved by the instructors, though may focus on one or a combination of the steps critical to the restoration process (i.e., projects may focus on designing/planning, implementing, monitoring, or reviewing/assessing restoration). Students will submit multiple written documents for review. Class meetings will entail a variety of activities designed to complement project development.This course will emphasizes high levels of student responsibility in developing project goals and objectives. At regular intervals, instructors will provide assessment of progress. However, groups are strongly encouraged to communicate with instructors as often as needed about challenges and opportunities encountered.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to;

  • Propose a restoration site, and in some cases also propose appropriate control sites, reference sites, and baseline data.
  • Design detailed inventories of current site conditions, including relevant biotic and abiotic factors.
  • Use a range of sources to generate the desired future conditions. In many cases this will entail making inferences about pre-impact historical conditions.
  • Assess and interpret key impacts to the site that have impaired ecological values.
  • Effectively communicate in writing the above components of a restoration plan.
  • Effectively communicate with specialists and stakeholders to ensure restoration is appropriate and viable.
  • Construct restoration plans that assimilate critical aspects of restoration relevant to BC, such as priorities for aquatic and terrestrial restoration, accessing available funding sources, and acquiring required permits and approvals.
