Bare Hands and Drones: Low-tech and High-tech in Ecological Restoration
The talk will cover a variety of techniques that have been implemented across the Mt. Haggin WMA that rely on cutting edge drone technology for vegetation mapping, delineation, project design and monitoring. The speaker will also demonstrate how fairly primitive and crude techniques that use both manual labor and rough construction to achieve dramatic restoration results. These approaches thrive in an adaptive management context that depends on great teams, intuition, flexibility and creativity at the expense of detailed plans.
