An Ecological Approach to Waterway Stabilization and Restoration

Date: October 10, 2019 - October 11, 2019
Location: Morris Arboretum, Philadelphia, PA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: Robert Wells
Description: This two-day class considers projects in both urban and suburban settings. On the first day we will focus on understanding watersheds, streams, and river dynamics and the way that water carves the land in natural and built landscapes. On the second day we will consider designing for restoration, techniques, practices, plantings, and materials for ecological restoration of waterways. A variety of design approaches and strategies will be provided. Handouts will include professional level graphics and selections from installed projects. Published documents, materials samples, design formulae, and project reports will be available for inspection in the classroom. John has worked as a professional applied ecologist for over 40 years. His work on wetlands, waterways, and shorelines includes projects all over eastern North America. He has worked on many projects including inventories, design, permitting, installation, and monitoring. His design approach uses the most ecologically appropriate methods, structures, materials, and plantings possible.
This course carries 13 CEUs for ISA certified arborists (S=5, P=5, M=3). This course also receives LA-CES credits for landscape architects.
This course meets at the Bloomfield Farm Horticulture Center. Look for the paved road across E. Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance. Take the second right, park in the lot and follow the signs and paved walkway to the Horticulture Center.
