Village Talk – Watersheds and wetlands restoration with schools

May 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Preserving our fragile tidal wetlands is critical to maintaining important ecosystems like those found in the wetlands at China Camp. Join us as we learn from the educators and students at STRAW (Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed).
Learn about:

The ecosystem services provided by our tidal wetlands
How students are helping to restore the wetlands
What’s involved in restoration
Native plants in the salt marsh
How Climate Smart restoration can help address climate change and sea level rise
The role of STRAW


This fascinating event includes not only a talk and slides but also hands-on activities to better understand the tidal marshes and the estuary.

The presenters include Laurette Rogers, educator, author and founder of STRAW and Kenneth Rangel, restoration technician and manager of the native plant nursery at San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

Interactive stations are suitable for age 5 to adult and are staffed by STRAW faculty members, including Patti Vance, the coordinator of the STRAW faculty.
