RRNW Portland Speaker Series December 19th, Esther Lev, The Wetlands Conservancy, Tualatin, Oregon

Join us December 19th for the next installment of the RRNW Portland Speaker Series.

Speaker: Esther Lev, Executive Director, The Wetlands Conservancy

Title: Hands on or hands off restoration? Or is it somewhere in-between? Why are we trying to do what nature does best? 

WhereLucky Lab Beer Hall in NW Portland  1945 NW Quimby St, Portland, OR 97209

When: Tuesday, December 19, 5:30 pm Networking, 6:00 pm Presentation

Join Esther Lev, executive director of The Wetlands Conservancy, for a discussion on restoration approaches and outcomes. Are we restoring habitats, watershed processes, or both?

Over the past 25 years, Esther has worked to restore and preserve Oregon’s wetlands. Esther established The Wetlands Conservancy as the leading voice for Oregon’s wetlands: Promoting conservation, collaboration, and stewardship. The Wetlands Conservancy is the only organization dedicated to promoting community and private partnerships to permanently protect and conserve Oregon’s greatest wetlands – our most biologically rich and diverse lands. Through her work at The Wetlands Conservancy, Esther designs and implements collaborative strategies to sustain the health of wetlands by working with local communities, land trusts, watershed councils, individual landowners and resource managers to promote local stewardship, restoration and acquisition of properties.

The purpose of the speaker series is to provide a local networking opportunity for the stream restoration community outside of River Restoration NW’s annual symposium and to hear from an expert on a restoration-related topic, in an informal setting, with beer!  Speakers will present for 20 to 30 minutes with time for questions and discussion. Food and drinks are available for purchase. You’ll be in charge of your own food and beverages but, rest assured that the storytelling and conversation will be excellent.

This event is sponsored by Wolf Water Resources
