Keynote Address

RIVER RESTORATION: CONNECTING RESEARCH AND COMMUNITY

Guest speaker, Rica Fulton, Restoration Coordinator, RiversEdge West
Collaborator, Cara Kukuraitis, Outreach Coordinator, RiversEdge West


Rica Fulton, a restoration specialist, discusses the importance of research as it relates to healthy riparian areas and communities. Invasive riparian species, such as tamarisk, outcompete native species over thousands of acres along rivers in the West, leading to degraded riparian ecosystems. Restoring riverside habitat to increase biodiversity and resiliency takes research, collaboration, fundraising, and community involvement. Her organization and hundreds of partners are committed to restoring rivers by connecting researchers and practitioners, educating the public, and implementing on-the-ground restoration.
