PG Museum of Natural History 2021 Speaker Series

2021 Speaker Series Theme: Restoring and Preserving Nature. Registration is Free, with a suggested donation of $15.00.

The museum will host ecologist Thor Anderson of Burleson Consulting, an expert in habitat restoration, wildlife, and landscape ecology, for a lecture entitled "A Monumental Task: Restoring Maritime Chaparral Habitat on Fort Ord National Monument"

Anderson's presentation will cover the challenges of restoring more than 60 acres of rare Central Coast maritime habitat-most specifically on the Fort Ord National Monument through a collaboration between federal, state and local agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private contractors.

Anderson has led a comprehensive restoration team to strategically plan and implement passive and active restoration on the former Fort Ord, and his presentation will reflect on past and present challenges, lessons learned, and the path forward with this decade-long endeavor.
