Reinventing Nature: Creating New Ecosystems – Speaker Series

The Restoration of Natural Systems Program at the University of Victoria is sponsoring a Speaker Series this fall on Reinventing Nature: Creating New Ecosystems. Nature in cities is shaped by the built environment and the activities of people. Impervious surfaces, invasive species, structural soils and other factors contribute to the formation of new communities not natural to the area. These are new or “novel” ecosystems that recently are the subject of intense study and scrutiny. This speaker series examines three of these novel ecosystems in Victoria. Admission is free but call Continuing Studies at the University of Victoria at 250-472-4747 to register and receive details on the location. Speakers are still to be determined.
