Presented by Craig Beatty, LERS Director-at-Large and IUCN Programme Officer. A discussion of ROOT, a new software tool that optimises trade-offs between ecosystem services, to help decision-makers visualise how to optimise restoration investments.
Presented by SERNW. Vicky Erickson, Lenya Quinn-Davidson, and Karin Riley discuss the role of wildfire and post-wildfire restoration in the Pacific Northwest.
Kingsley Dixon of SERAustralasia discusses global mining restoration, including success stories and emerging technologies.
Presented by SERMWGL. The Morton Arboretum is developing a new blended learning format to support educational needs of volunteer stewards conducting restoration. The multimedia initiative combines online modules, field experiences, and traditional classes, and allows audiences to access interactive course materials from home computers. 
Presented by SERMWGL. Speakers from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District discussed the Times Beach, NY Confined Disposal Facility Restoration Project, and how lessons learned in promoting native flora establishment and invasive species control have been used at similar projects in the region and across the nation

Presented by SERMWGL. Speakers from USEPA and CSRA spoke about “EPA Process and Quality Assurance Practices for Restoration Projects”.
Presented by SERMWGL. Speakers from Ohio Prairie Nursery discussed the importance of proper seed mixes in restoration. 
Dr. Hough-Snee discusses a variety of recent approaches and tools that can be used when monitoring riparian vegetation and floodplain ecosystems at scales relevant to land management, including watershed and administrative unit scales (grazing allotment, National Forest Ranger District, etc.).
This webinar addresses key questions about the ecology, governance, landscape conditions, and social drivers of secondary tropical forests and the role these forests can play for conservation and restoration in the Anthropocene.  

Derek Schafer, Executive Director, will present on the initiatives WCC has implemented throughout its service area that protects land, provides greenspace, restores waterways, and creates resilient communities – while also providing alternative transportation and recreational corridors.
Authors An Cliquet, Anastasia Telesetsky, Afshin Akhtarkhavari discuss their book: "Ecological Restoration in International Environmental Law." This is the first published book to examine comprehensively the relationship between international environmental law and ecological restoration. 
Presented by SERNW. John Goetz of Clean Water Services discusses questions and issues surrounding watershed management projects, by addressing topics including site preparation, herbicide usage, plant monitoring, and urban beaver research.
Presented by Dr. David Sabaj-Stahl of the SERNW. Novel approaches were developed to assess the occurrence and potential impacts of spatial autocorrelation on correlation analyses involving invasive/native species and related community constructs. 
Presented by SERNW and Dr. Raymond Timm.

Stephanie Frischie, Chris Helzer, and Todd Erickson present the rationale and successive steps that are required for the efficient delivery and use of seeds in ecological restoration. Case studies from prairie ecosystems in North America and the hot deserts of north-western Australia illustrate the process.
Marion Hourdequin and David Havlick, co-editors of the book Restoring Layered Landscapes, discuss the challenges of restoring and conserving layered landscapes, which they define as "landscapes with complex histories shaped by ongoing interactions between humans and nature."
This webinar, presented by Curtin Professor Kingsley Dixon, noted authority on smoke germination, runs through the background and history of this important discovery and the remarkable scientific journey to the discovery of the compounds in smoke that stimulate germination. The webinar also goes through the step-by-step process for building your own smoke apparatus for treating seed and making smoke water.
This webinar addresses key questions about the ecology, governance, landscape conditions, and social drivers of secondary tropical forests and the role these forests can play for conservation and restoration in the Anthropocene.

Dr. Ed Hansen and Suzanne DeVries-Zimmerman of Hope College present on dune ecology and management in this webinar, hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration and SER Midwest-Great Lakes Chapter.
Tim Purinton, Samantha Woods and Paul Davis discuss the development of the Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration: how it works, what it has accomplished and how it could be a model for other states, followed by a case study of the Herring Creek dam removal and a Q&A session.
Presented by SERGB. Holly Prendeville, Research Geneticist, USFS PNW, Corvallis, Oregon, explains provisional and empirical seed zones and discusses tools available that allow us to use seed zones to select genetically appropriate plant materials for restoration.
Presented by SERGB. Justin Runyon, Research Entomologist, USFS RMRS, Bozeman, MT discusses the diversity, distribution, possible functions, and potential use in restoration of sagebrush chemistry, focusing on volatiles.
