Co-presented by the Association of Tropical and Conservation Biology. This webinar explores how biotic interactions influence the restoration of natural tropical ecosystems, with four international presenters.
Post-fire Restoration in the Great Basin-Challenges, Opportunities, and a Call to Make Adaptive Management Real
Members of the Great Basin Chapter of SER describe the efforts, past and future, from scientific and management perspectives, and address the needs and prospects for an adaptive management approach.
Presented by SERNW and Jalene Littlejohn of OISC. In Oregon, organizations are focusing on preventing establishment of new invasive species and taking actions to eradicate, control, and/or manage the invasive species that have already arrived.
Co-hosted by the Society of Wetland Scientists. Kevin Du Bois and Kevin Erwin present on case studies of wetland restoration, including living shoreline design and the restoration of Little Pine Island and Lake Wales Forest.
Join SER's Certification Program Coordinator Jen Lyndall to learn about the program and hear from Mel Asher, CERP, about a practitioner's perspective.
Presented by SERNW and Karin Riley with the USDA Forest Service. Maps of trees in forests are desirable for many applications. However, detailed mapping for large areas is not currently feasible, but statistical methods can populate landscapes with a limited set of data.
Presented by Kaisa Junninen of Metsähallitus Parks & Wildlife Finland.This presentation was an overview on the measures, ecological effects and challenges of restoration and ecological management of Finnish forest reserves.
Presented by SERNW and Rory Denovan, Restoration Ecologist & Strategic Advisor for city of Seattle. Rory presents his extensive works involving the restoration of urban landscapes for the purpose of establishing pollinator habitats.
Open Access! Restoration Resource Center: A New Tool for Restorationists
The RRC is an online platform for exchanging knowledge and experience. SER Program Manager Levi Wickwire presents an overview of its history and a tutorial of how to search and submit projects and resources.
Presented by INSR's Marcello de Vitis. Those who work with native seeds depend on each other for information and resources to address the challenges of conservation, research, production and use.
Presented by Reijo Hokkanen, Planning Officer for Parks and Wildlife Finland. 50% of the original peatland of Finland has been drained for forestry. More than 25,000 hectares have been restored since the early 1990s. This webinar reviews the various techniques and monitoring methods used in peatland restoration.
Presented by SERNW. Dave Polster, Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner (CERP) presents on effective strategies to understand and utilize natural processes in restoration.
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.
