Seed-Based Restoration for Urban Settings on Vancouver Island

February 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Presentation by Kristen Miskelly (MSc), a biologist who specializes in the flora, ecology, and restoration of ecosystems of southern Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands, and who also owns and operates Satinflower Nurseries, a native plant nursery and consulting busines. Reducing barriers to restoration is one of the goals of Satinflower Nurseries. Over the last ten years, the nursery has produced native seeds and worked to encourage their use on southern Vancouver Island, including in urban areas. In this presentation, the topics of discussion will be how native seeds can be used to enhance biodiversity and create drought-tolerant spaces in our neighbourhoods and cities. Kristen will share project examples like greenroof, septic fields, and urban meadows. The talk, presented by the Canadian Society of Environmental Biologists, will also highlight aspects of small-scale native seed production.
