Cleveland Museum of Natural History says
Dr. Margaret Palmer, Professor and Director at University of Maryland's National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, presents, "Restoring America’s Streams and Rivers: A Promise or Reality?"

Streams and rivers provide drinking water, fisheries and recreational opportunities, yet they are the most severely degraded of all ecosystems. The science and practice of ecological restoration provides hope that they can be healed and the resources they provide recovered. What approaches are being taken to restore these systems? How do these approaches vary across urban, agricultural and mined landscapes, and are they resulting in the outcomes hoped for? What are the social, political and ecological dynamics at play?

Guarantee seating by purchasing tickets in advance at cmnh.org/explorerseries. Doors open at 5:30pm with a cash bar & live music in the lobby. Meals by Exploration: A Zack Bruell Restaurant available for purchase. The presentation begins at 7pm, followed by Q&A with the speaker.
